Buy Salvia 'Royal Bumble' sage: Bright late summer colour

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

  • Position: full light (with shade from hot sun)
  • Soil: well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Vibrant red flowers clothe the purple-flushed stems for several months from early summer putting on an eye-catching display in the border. Tolerant of coastal conditions and lightly dappled shade.

  • 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.

I moved this plant a couple of times in a year (to avoid building work) and it is still busy flowering away. Good robust plant.

An Easy Going and Reliable Salvia

Royal Bumble is a really useful Salvia with brilliant red flowers that go so well with late summer perennials. I have in my borders and they have withstood several winters without a problem.

This is an excellent plant, not affected by slugs and snails. Still evergreen in January. It has such a long flowering season. It's got an abundance of read flowere. It has a heat habit, I would really recommend this for the front of a border.

I had this plant and it was completely stripped over night before I had a chance to get it into the ground. Recommendation comes with this warning. I am ordering 3 more and taking my own advice to thoroughly water all the ground around them with slug & snail killer (magnesium sulfate)

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

Summer stars from warmer climates

When we are all, hopefully, enjoying the hotter more humid days in July and the longer evenings there is a different range of plants that come into their own in our gardens, ones found naturally close to the equator or in the upper reaches of the Souther
