Salvia Blackcurrant (Salvia microphylla)

Salvia Blackcurrant – Salvia microphylla

Salvia Blackcurrant – Salvia microphylla is a salvia with a wonderfully strong scent of blackcurrants. Commonly known as Blackcurrant Sage. Ideal for containers or in the border.

Beautiful flowers of a deep rose pink that are particularly attractive to bees and pollinators. In addition, leaves and flowers are edible. Use in the kitchen to add a tasty hint of blackcurrant flavour to food and drinks.

Reasonably hardy if you grow in a light soil in a sunny, sheltered spot. Alternatively, grow in a large pot and move to a frost free place in winter.
