Salvia macrophylla 'Purple Underside', 5 seeds
Native to Tingo Peru, here is another unusual Sage that is not often seen, but oh so garden worthy! There are 2 forms to Salvia macrophylla and on offer here is the rarely available upright version growing tall and stately without the tendency to spread nor wander like the lower form. It is a very beautiful plant that blooms in an exquisite brilliant blue with extremely long protruding white stamens. The leaves, themselves, however, are reasons enough to grow this Salvia. These are monstrous, huge, soft to the touch and heart-shaped, making a grand and luxurious clump that adds a tropical touch to any corner of the gardens. This particular version has foliage with purple underside rather than green. Hardy from zone 9 upwards. 5 feet tall and wide. Full sun to part shade. Well-drained soils. Regular water. Rare seeds, harvested 10/2017.
