Properties and uses:
The Salvia grahamii will enchant you with the beauty of its blossom from May right through to the first frosts. Its abundant small vivid pink flowers will bring colour to your garden. In addition its fine foliage is slightly scented. This sage is highly resistant to drought when well settled in, but do not hesitate to put down some mulch around its roots in areas where winters are quite harsh.
It will make a nice surprise whether planted in a low hedge, in a border, or even in a pot with ornamental grasses.
