Salvia microphylla 'Heatwave Glimmer', 10 seeds
Hybridized by the Melbourne-based Plant Growers Australia team of Howard Bentley and Steve Eggleton, the Heatwave series consisting of various varieties and colors is bred for growing in hot, dry conditions but is still adaptable to cooler coastal regions. Compact with denser foliage compared to Autumn Sages (S. greggii) which tends to get leggy and airy, this series is ideal for front of borders, containers and pathways. Heatwave Glimmer features cream flowers contrasted beautifully by dark calyx. Hardy from zone 7 onwards. 2 feet tall and wide. Full sun to half-day of sun, and any well-drained garden soils. Drought tolerant when established, can take extreme sun and heat. Also tolerant of regular water on a weekly basis if you want to interplant this with other plants that need more water.
