Description:

Salvia Jemima’s Gem

Salvia Jemima’s Gem is brand new for 2020. Bred by our Nursery Manager, Michelle, we are very proud of this addition as it is probably the strongest Salvia we have ever grown. The huge flowers are cerise in colour and look like velvet. It positively ‘glows’!

Extremely long flowering season from Spring to late Autumn, benefits from a heavy trim in early summer. The leaves are quite dark in colour, rounded, with a strong fruity scent.

Although most Salvias should be considered half hardy, this is proven to be hardy year on year during testing.

Height and spread up to 3 feet.

Excellent for pots, beds and borders.

 

Like all salvias, we recommed dead-heading and gentle pruning during the flowering season but leave the alone from October and trim them back once the frosts have passed in late spring.

This plant will be available from January 2020. Please contact us for any pre-orders
