Buy Salvia Love and Wishes ('Serendip6') (PBR) salvia: A vibrant new addition

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, 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
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    The third in the 'Wish' series of salvias, this new addition has jaw-dropping magenta flowers, each held by a dark burgundy calyx. Also, if the plant is deadheaded regularly, the flowers will appear over an incredibly long period - often providing colour from June to November. It has a neat an tidy habit too, which makes it great for both borders and pots, and once well established, it will become tolerant of drought.

  • 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.

Hi, I have purchased Salvia Love and Wishes now for the last 2 years. They've put on a spectacular show throughout the growing season but sadly they never return the following year. All are dead. I've got well draining borders that get good maintenance each year and so I really don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, These plants are not quite fully hardy, so unless you live in a warmer part of the country, or have a sheltered garden, they may not survive the colder weather - particularly when the temperatures drop as low as they did this year!

How to use those dreamy flower spires

There's one garden essential that brings a planting scheme to life and it's upright flower spikes that soar heavenwards. They add drama and perspective to all your other planting and, as they open from the bottom upwards, each spire offers a glorious co

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
