Why We Love It

Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ is a hardy evergreen with small aromatic leaves.

Its flowers change colour through the summer right up to the first frost.

They start out red eventually ending up white.

How to Plant

Salvias like full sun, but will tolerate partial shade. They prefer well-drained soil. In fact, salvias thrive in poor soil and can take quite a lot of neglect. Official advice is to plant salvias 1 to 2 feet apart, but we’ve also found that a group planted closer together can survive well and look stunning.

Into the Ground

Water the ground well, then make a small hole in the soil a little larger than the pot your salvia comes in. Carefully remove the plant from its pot, gently loosen its roots with your fingers, and place it into the hole. ‘Back fill’ soil around it and pat until your salvia is firmly tucked in. Give it one last water for luck.

Into a Pot

Salvias do very well in pots. Plant in good quality container compost, adding horticultural grit, or placing bits of broken pot/ stones in the bottom to ensure good drainage.
