SALVIA PRATENSIS ROSE RHAPSODY
Striking, enchanting, rose-pink hooded blooms are massed on densely-packed flower heads on long stems, over dark green, aromatic foliage. They are perfect for a mixed border display and most attractive to butterflies and bees, whilst dead-heading gives a very long season of colour.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
