Buy Salvia Ember's Wish ('SAL 0101') (PBR) sage: A ideal plant for the middle of the border

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun to lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Flower colour: magenta pink
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    A sport of the popular 'Wendy's Wish', with upright stems topped from midsummer with loose clusters of fiery coral-orange flowers. It looks wonderful when teamed with yellow flowering perennials where it will quickly fill a gap towards the middle of the border.

  • Garden care: To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon they start to fade. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.

Over wintering half hardy plants in pots

You can never quite predict how severe our winter weather will be. In the absence of a crystal ball, it is best in October to make contingency plans to help your plants to survive while there will still be some warmth in the sun and the soil. Hardiness is
