Description

The Salvia Vista Purple offers multiple vibrant purple blooms on a spiky stem atop its deep green floiage. Vista purple is comprised of dense, well packed flower spikes with dark green foliage. Salvia ’Vista’ boasts superior plant uniformity, an excellent heat tolerance and is known to hold its color intensity throughout the season. To plant, simply prepare suitable planting holes, spread the roots as you fill in, and water well. For such a beautiful plant, Salvia is an easy to care for annual. When in need of a splash of purple in your Spring garden, few plants can outdo this dramatic beauty. Some Salvia’s have hairy leaves or stems or flowers, and these hairs sometimes give off an aroma when brushed as oil is secreted. The flowers of Salvia are usually tubular with two “lips” – the lower one larger than the upper one – and often fragrant. ‘Sizzler Burgundy’ is a dwarf variety, with spikes of burgundy colored flowers through summer Most offer spikes of densely packed flowers in shades of pink and purple and have a long period of bloom. They are especially valuable where summers are hot and dry, for they ignore heat and go steadily about the business of making flowers. All prefer sun and excellent drainage.
