SALVIA X JAMENSIS 'HOT LIPS'
HEIGHT: 60 - 90cm SPREAD: 60 cm
POSITION: Full sun
Here it is - the ever popular and gloriously bi coloured 'Hot Lips' but if you are new to salvias this is a good place to start. Easy and so long flowering - often still going on Bonfire Night .
Grows into a substantial shrub but if its getting too big for your space just shape as you need . Leave the foliage on in the autumn and then cut back In spring when the new shoots appear at the base.
NB. Early in the season the flowers may be plain red or white but the bicolour will appear as the summer progresses.
