Product Description

A sister variety to the very popular 'Love and Wishes' and 'Wendy's Wish', Salvia 'Ember's Wish' has a bright coral flower that is perfect for adding colour and interest into the garden. This fast growing variety displays vibrant coral coloured flowers for much of the year, particularly during the warmer months. The flowers are tubular and capped by a colourful calyx (Back of the flower) which remains some time after flowering extending its interest even longer. The mid-green foliage appears dense and lush and is further complimented by maroon stems of the plant. All three varieties in the Wish Collection are aligned with Make-A-Wish Australia and part proceeds go towards granting wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. 'Ember's Wish' is named in loving memory of Emma and Brett Shegog.

Planting Tips
Embers Wish' is fast growing, dry tolerant and low maintenance. Dry tolerant once established. Requires an occasional long soak during extended periods of heat. Grows well in most soil types but thrives in fertile, well drained soils. Trim off around one third of size after flowering to maintain shape and encourage a dense, bushy habit. An application of slow release fertiliser in spring will be beneficial.
