Salvia 'Santa Barbara' is a dwarf form of the common Mexican Sage. It is widely known for it's tough garden performance making it an exceptional selection for use in both domestic and commercial landscapes. Showy long stems of velvety purple flowers crown the silvery green foliage over summer through autumn. Compact habit and drought resistance make this Salvia a great addition to any garden. 'Santa Barbara' combines well with lavender and rosemary to provide a true Mediterranean feel. Try planting with Rosemary 'Irene' and any of the Lavender Ruffles Collection for a purpleicious explosion for the spring garden!

Choose a site in full sun in most soil types with good drainage. Dry tolerant once established but should be given the occasional deep watering during extended periods of heat. During early spring cut back old foliage stems once new growth begins to appear at the crown. Feed at this time with an application of slow release fertiliser for best results.
