Buy Salvia 'Wendy's Wish' (PBR) sage: Puts on a sizzling summer display

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)

    A superb new salvia, which was discovered growing in an Australian garden in 2005. Believed to be a cross between Salvia buchananii and Salvia chiapensis ‘Purple Majesty’, it is a bushy perennial that produces an abundance of magenta pink flowers over a several months from midsummer. These dazzling flowers have a citrus scent and are held on reddish stems, so the overall effect is very colourful. Drought tolerant once established, it will be happiest in a warm, sheltered position with freely draining soil.

  • 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.

Lovely Plant

I actually bought this as a gift for a friend called Wendy, so I had been looking for a flowering plant with her name. She loved it and it is a really lovely plant. Not too big but loads of blossom during the summer months.

I'm a big fan of Love and Wishes so thought I'd try this one too. It is fabulous - goes on and on, healthy &c. but a bit too garish after the beautiful L&W but if you want something bright and strong then I would highly recommend this.

I bought 3 of these flowers, as I wanted something specific with the name "Wendy". I've planted them all in pots, & had an abundance of brightly coloured flowers from them throughout the year & still into winter. Next year I plan to plant in my borders, as I'm really pleased with how they have flourished.

Can be used as a statement plant. Alternatively it's very pretty en-masse. Half-hardy.

My garden is south facing and gets sun only after 11am. Salvia Wendy's Wish performed beautifully, producing blooms through the summer and into autumn. For the winter I have brought the three plants into the conservatory, which is 5 degrees C, and they are looking strong and healthy.

Eye Catching

As mentioned by other reviewers, it arrived looking like just a small bunch of leaves. I planted this Salvia in a south facing direction in May and within 4 months has grown into a very big shrub in my border. (See attached photos) Highly recommended.

Beautiful Salvia

When this plant arrived at the end of July it was a small bunch of leaves in a nine inch pot and I was concerned I might not get it fully established before winter set in. Now it is a bushy nine inches with lush growth and has just produced flowers which are opening on the tips of all of the stems. It is an amazing colour and I am delighted with it. Crocus you have done it again, thank you.
