Salvia 'Ember's Wish'

full sun
part shade
height 80cm
spread 80cm

A sister variety to the very popular 'Wendy's Wish', Salvia 'Ember's Wish' has a bright coral flower that is perfect for adding colour and interest into the garden. This fast growing variety displays vibrant coral coloured flowers for much of the year, particularly during the warmer months. The flowers are tubular and capped by a colourful calyx which remains some time after flowering extending its interest even longer. The mid-green foliage appears dense and lush and is further complimented by maroon stems of the plant.

Plant in drifts alongside Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' and Salvia 'Love and Wishes' for a vibrant display! All three varieties in the Wish Collection are aligned with Make-A-Wish Australia and part proceeds go towards granting wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. 'Ember's Wish' is named in loving memory of Emma and Brett Shegog.

An easy care variety, it grows in most soil types, but will thrive in fertile, well drained locations in your garden. For optimum results, prune back one third of the plant after flowering in early spring to maintain shape, and encourage a dense bushy habit. Fertilise with a general purpose slow release fertiliser at the same time of pruning. Dry tolerant once established. Requires an occasional long soak during extended periods of heat.

  • Mass plant in drifts for stunning, low maintenance displays
  • Large containers
  • Mixed borders
  • General garden use
  • Fast results for new gardens
