Salvia Muirii is an small evergreen perennial shrub with grey – green fragrant foliage, producing a vibrant display of violet blue flowers with splashes of white during the Summer to Autumn months.
Muirri makes an ideal border plant and is great in cottage gardens, perennial gardens, sensory gardens, pots, containers and herb and vegie gardens.
Salvia Muirii will grow up to 45cms tall by 50cms wide in full sun, in well drained soils and will tolerate light frost and dry spells once established. Prune and fertilise after flowering to encourage a compact habit.
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.
