Salvia chamaedryoides

Regular price £6.50 Sale

From the high uplands of the mountains of Mexico, found at 9000 ft  growing in dry, desert like habitats.

With a shapely, low mounding form and most attractive, small apple green, evergreen leaves that appear to be coated with tiny diamonds that sparkle in the sunlight, it would be worth a place in many gardens but the bonus is when it produces the most delicate but pretty true blue flowers with lilac sepals in early summer then again in autumn that persist until the frosts of winter.

Hardy to -10 C, it needs a free draining soil and benefits from a protective mulch before winter sets in.
