Salvia Greggii Coral Autumn Sage is a perennial plant with upright stems, that are slightly woody at the base and which carry fresh green oval leaves. Coral Sage produces tubular flowers of a delicate coral colour from mid Spring right through Summer to the end of Autumn.
Coral Sage thrives in a sunny to partly shaded position in moist to well drained soils and will tolerate light frosts.
Coral Sage will grow up to 50cms tall by up to 70cms wide and is ideal for perennial borders, cottage gardens and rockeries. Salvias look great in pots and containers, but will really thrive when planted out in the garden.
Cut back after flowering to encourage strong new fresh growth and re flowering.
I find that my Salvias in my garden, respond well to a regular liquid feed, once per month will be suffice and an annual feed of a good quality fertiliser, in the Spring months, will help to keep them well nourished and performing throughout all seasons
At Paddys Plants, we do our best to give you the right information, that we have received, in regards to our Salvia range, there are hundreds of species very similar in colour, style and growth habit and we sadly, have been the scorn of some Salvia experts, I would like to quote a grower, that I admire and respect and often turn to for further knowledge and advice myself, in my mind her knowledge on salvias and perennials, is the best and most thourough, in Sue Templeton ” The average gardener doesn’t care about the exactness but just wants to know what sort of plant it is”. I find, Sue Templetons page, is the best page I have read for information on Salvias and other perennials here in Australia.
