Ratings & Reviews

Salvia- Blaze of Fire

I was amazed at how easily these grew. Mine have been flowering all year round even through winter. Only negative is that leaves get eaten by the caterpillars . The leaves on this salvia are almost lime green in my Adelaide soil. Flowers are a fire-engine red
