Description:

Salvia Amante

Salvia Amante is a spectacular Salvia with long branches dripping with silky, red flowers which look stunning against inky black stems and calyces. It really is the red flowering form of Amistad – one of our favourites! Long flowering period. Plant in a sheltered position in free draining soil or be prepared to protect over the winter months.

During the flowering season (spring to late summer outside), trim back spent flowers to next leaf node. If in a pot, feed once every 3 – 4 weeks with a seaweed fertiliser.

The plant is wonderful at attracting insects and we have even seen hummingbird hawkmoths on the flowers.
