Wendy’s Wish

DSCF9985DSCF9979Salvia Wendy’s Wish

Wendy’s Wish is a new variety from Austrailia, and is thought to be a cross possibly between buchananii and chiapensis, with large bright purple flowers set in red calyces. Flowering from spring until autumn over a neat and bushy plant. Height 80cm (32″). Spread 60cm (24″).

Very easy to grow, drought tolerant and excellent for containers and borders. Prefers sun or part shade in well drained soil.

Happily this is my own plant, growing together with the deep indigo Salvia Amistad (albeit this is much taller). I bought this at Hampton Court Flower Show and it has been in flower every day since…
