Good to grow on patio or balcony containers too Salvia Amethyst Lips partners well with the shorter yet equally impactful purple flowers of petunias, cherry-pie plants and lobelias. High in scent and pleasant to brush by your Salvia Amethyst Lips plants engages so many senses in summer with flowers lasting from June right into September.

Useful tips:

Take cuttings of the leafy stems in the summer and pop the cuttings up into plant pots filled with a potting on compost like John Innes No.2. This increases the numbers of new plants you have at your disposal and is a great way to make savings while enjoying a rich flower garden.

In October cut down the stems to ground level and keep the roots of your plants warm and active with a surrounding layer of mulch on the soil surface.
