Salvia nemorosa 'East Friesland' / 'Ostfriesland'. 2 Litre Potted Plants

Salvia nemorosa East Friesland has plumes of intense violet-blue flowers highlighted with pink bracts, great for edging a well-drained border or wildlife garden.

Gardeners love its depth of colour and the fact it is so compact and bushy, flowering from July through to September. Flowers stand tall above its mounds of soft-edged, mid-green foliage.

Growing Salvia

Salvias need close to full sun, and will grow near the coast in exposed locations. They are fully hardy, although their flowering season will be shortened somewhat in cold and windy places. They are happy on chalk, and like a light, well-drained but moist soil enriched with humus that doesn't remain wet in winter, so heavy clay is not good. They are perfect for a Mediterranean or gravel garden, and are great in large containers. Established plants are drought resistant, but still want fairly consistent moisture in dry summer periods to flower really well.
They are perfect for a Mediterranean or gravel garden, and are great in large containers.

Deadhead promptly to get the most from the flowering season. Leave the withered foliage on the plants overwinter for protection, and trim them after the last spring frost, right down to new growth.

Mulch lightly every year or two, ideally after a heavy spring rain when the soil has warmed up. Salvias don't need much fertility, so a little help goes a long way.

In Your Garden Design

They are perfect for a Mediterranean, gravel or wildlife garden, at the edge of arrangements with other sun-lovers such as Achilleas, grasses and Rudbeckia fulgida. Think of plants that contrast in form, not only colour - the compact Salvia will sit well in front of these two.

They are also perfect plants for large containers, where you can create your own mini hot garden with drainage perfect for Salvia and alpine plants.
