Buy Salvia 'Nachtvlinder' salvia: Sumptuous summer colour

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Velvet-like plum-purple petals form hooded flowers over a long period in summer and autumn. Fully hardy in freely draining soils, this bushy shrub will become drought tolerant once established.

  • 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. Protect from excessive cold and waterlogged soils.

Healthy plants, promptly delivered

I purchased two salvias from Crocus and they were both securely packaged and promptly delivered. They were both well grown healthy plants. I would definitely recommend Crocus to my friends, family and clients.

Strong plants

5

These plants arrived promptly and looked good and strong. I immediately potted them on into larger pots whilst deciding on their eventual location. Their roots quickly filled the new pots and they flowered profusely and I have just planted them into the garden nd they still look very well. I will certainly use Crocus again for my plant purchases.

These salvias appear so delicate, but are hardy, and I love the gorgeous deep shade of purple, they look stunning in my herbaceous border.

Don't overlook this salvia!

This is a fabulous salvia. It's subtle colours go with so many other plants, the flowers are delicate but the plant is substantial and best of all, it smells divine. I bought a few for my border last year and they flowered all through the summer and autumn. They are lovely for cutting and make the arrangements smell wonderful - its a real favourite and I would highly recommend it. Crocus provided lovely little plants which had strong and healthy roots - just what I've come to expect from them.

Very unusual and pretty

I thought my 9cm pot plant was smothered by the neighbouring perennials and then in mid November it started flowering next to the last of penstemon Plum Jerkum and wallflower Red Jep. Unexpectedly stunning combination! It is so dainty and pretty - I hope it survives the Winter.

I planted them under roses as suggested, so waiting to see if they help with the dreaded black spot! Hope so.

Which plants need cloching?

Frost tender plants can be encouraged to grow far more quickly under cloches and one group of plants, the cucurbits, benefit from the extra warmth overnight. This allows them to photosynthesise for longer and squash, courgette and outdoor cucumber plants
