Salvia Amethyst Lips needs a little protection in an exposed garden, but the superb, velvety depth of colour and form of the double lipped flowers make such attention well worthwhile. Plant this bushy, evergreen shrub in a cottage garden, herbaceous borders or even in containers.

Once established, S. Amethyst Lips is drought resistant and pollinator friendly. Position ideally within reach of the kitchen where its fragrant, edible foliage can be used for culinary purposes.
