Salvias are a hardy plant, which grow in almost any soil type, and suit almost any climate and garden style. They like free draining soil, but aside from that, will grow anywhere. They do equally well in pots as in gardens.
Salvia can be grown from seed, seedling or cutting.
Plant in full sun (or partial sun), and water regularly. They are a hardy plant and can withstand dry conditions if needed.
They grow in a smallish bush (up to three metres high), and can be used for hedging, in borders, or as a stand-alone plant.
Salvias usually flower between Spring and Autumn. They can get a bit rangy so be sure to give them a hard prune in the Winter months.
