Salvia patens 'Dot's Delight'

Plant details

Perennial salvias make a great addition to mixed borders, bearing spiky, nectar-rich flowers throughout the summer months, and often into autumn.

Salvia patens 'Dot's Delight' bears masses of rich blue flowers on bushy plants with mid-green foliage, from midsummer to autumn. It's perfect for planting near a bench or path, where you can enjoy its pretty blooms, or in an informal, mixed, sunny border. The flowers are extremely attractive bees and other pollinators.

For best results grow Salvia patens 'Dot's Delight' in well-drained soil, in full sun. Plants may need protection in winter.
