Salvia macrophylla 'Upright Form', 10 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 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, wonderfully contrasted by lime green calyces. 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. Hardy from zone 9 upwards. 5 feet tall and wide. Full sun to part shade. Well-drained soils. Regular water. Rare seeds, harvested 08/2017.
Our website for actively-growing plants and cuttings (eclecticplants.ecrater.com) is now re-opened starting 6/2/2014. Cuttings of some Salvia species are available there.
