Product Description

The third installment in the Salvia Wish Collection!

Salvia 'Love and Wishes' shares the same great characteristics of the other plants in the collection - a fantastic dome-shaped habit, fast growing and dry tolerant. With a stunning new flower colour you'll want one for your garden. 'Love and Wishes' is very long flowering and rewards with deep purple flowers for most of the year.

Salvia ‘Love and Wishes’ offers stunning deep purple coloured flowers over an extensive flowering season. 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.

Love and Wishes' continues the strong alignment with Make-A-Wish® Australia with part proceeds from the sale of every plant being donated to this special charity to help grant wishes for children with life threatening medical conditions.

  • Mass plant in drifts for stunning displays
  • Large containers
  • Mixed borders
  • Fast gowing
  • Dry tolerant once established
