'Royal Purple Autumn Sage' is one of the smaller leaved salvias that are often referred to as "Autumn Sages", blooming from mid summer until frost with thin dividing stems producing an almost endless succession of bright blue flowers, amongst very strongly-perfumed leaves. Although it superficially appears to be one of the tender salvias, this plant seems to be completely hardy, dying down safely underground each winter, and has stood minus 10 C (14 F) here. Most plants in this group have red, orange or yellow flowers which makes the striking purple flowers of S. muelleri a treasure. This plant is completely new to us, and it produces very, very few viable seeds indeed.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
