Salvia dombeyi

The longest flowered Salvia in the world (up to 11cm!), this tall growing species from S. Peru and N. Bolivia is not known in the wild. Elongated heart shaped foliage is up to 18cm long and plants reach 1.8 to 2.5m. The huge lax clusters of vertically dangling intense scarlet hairy flowers from red-black calyces are borne continuously from summer to winter. Happiest moist and cool, with no frost, so best in semi-shade outside for summer and overwintered under cover.

Pot size: 2L
