The Salvia genus is vast and includes around 900 species. The range of different salvias to grow is huge, with flower colours from electric blue, bright red and lemon yellow available.

Salvia flowers are tubular with a split lower petal. Foliage shapes and colours are also very varied and often scented when crushed. Choose between annuals often used for bedding schemes, hardy herbaceous salvias or woody tender types. The herb sage is a salvia and has many culinary uses



Plant them in moist but well-drained soil in full sun in a sheltered spot.
