Salvia 'Pink Velour' is an exciting colour break from the common Mexican Sage, which is widely known for it's tough garden performance making it an exceptional selection for use in domestic and commercial landscapes. Showy long stems of velvety pink flowers crown the silvery green foliage over late summer through autumn. 'Pink Velour' combines well with lavender and rosemary to provide a true Mediterranean feel. Very effective when planted alongside Salvia 'White Velour'.

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.

• Container displays for lengthy colour • Ideal for low maintenance gardening • Water wise/Mediterranean gardens • Great displays in large containers • Mass plant on embankments • Coastal and poolside location • Fast growing for new gardens
