Planting and care

Plant in average or enriched soil and fertilize as needed.
Over a long season, flowers will drop, leaving a ragged spike. When this happens, cut the plant back. New growth emerges refreshed.
Snails and slugs find salvia to be a delicious treat, especially in moist conditions and when the plants are mulched.

Sunlight: In cooler climates, plant in full sun.
In areas with very hot summers, partial shade, especially in the afternoon, reduces stress.
Soil: Well drained soil, warm soil
Water: Larger varieties with deeper roots need less water than dwarf varieties.
Temperature: 15 degrees C and above
Fertilizer: Plant in average or enriched soil and fertilize as needed

Caring for Salvia Splendens Red

  • Most salvia like lots of sun, although a few species tolerate very light shade.
  • If your garden does not have adequate drainage, mix stones, gravel or lava rock into the bottom of the hole when you plant your salvia.
  • Using a trowel, dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the pot the salvia transplant is in.
  • Loosen the roots of the salvia, spread them out in the hole, and backfill with soil mixed with compost.
  • Be sure to water the young plants regularly until they are fully grown so that they don t dry out.
  • Prune the heavier, woody stems every spring.

Typical uses of Salvia Splendens Red

Special features: Salvias are prolific and durable bloomers.
