Salvia mexicana ‘Limelight’
One of the best autumn-flowering plants in our garden where it makes a shrubby 180cm x 150cm in a season. Salvia ‘Limelight’ has quite large deep green leaves which set off nicely the stunning lime green and purple flowers. It’s in flower from early summer until frosts or well into winter in mild districts. Although the top growth gets cut by frost at Lambley it mostly reshoots in the spring. A covering of straw over the roots in winter will help. Cut back hard in spring. Sun or light shade.
