Salvia elegans 'Honey Melon', 7 seeds
Here's yet another beautiful and interesting sage that all Salvia lovers should not do without. If you have already tried the species Pineapple Sage Salvia elegans and loves that it is a showstopper starting from late fall through winter with lots of precious, velvety, ruby-red, tubular flowers that are smothered with hummingbirds and butterflies, you will be delighted with this rare cultivar as well. Honey Meloon is a dwarf with the earlier blooms starting in summer, suitable for containers and front of borders. And it comes with a fruity twist -- the smaller, "furrier", tender, serrated leaves exude a smell of honey, melon and pineapple when bruised! Hardy from zone 8 onwards. 2 feet tall and wide. Full sun, and any well-drained garden soils. Usually available only in plants/cuttings form. Exclusive fresh seeds, harvested 01/2018.
