** 40 PlantGenesis seeds **Hardy to half hardy perennialA great first year flowering Salvia, with masses of intense scarlet flowers all through the summer, from June to September. The flowers make an attractive contrast to the deep green leaves, which have a spicy scent. Salvia ?Hot Trumpets? are compact plants, growing to a height of 20-30cm and good for both borders and pots. Salvia roemeriana does best in sun to part shade and a wide range of well-drained soils. A position in well-drained soil helps these plants to survive the winter, as they are on the edge of hardiness. Salvia takes good cuttings. Sowing: Sow in spring and summer in a tray of seed compost, keep at a constant 20 degrees Celcius and germination takes 2-4 weeks. If there is no germination, move the tray to a fridge for 2-4 weeks and then back into the warmth, and seeds should germinate in the next few weeks. Protect plants in a greenhouse or cold frame in the first winter. Lift plants or take cuttings in colder UK gardens over winter. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.PlantGenesis is a Crowders Marketplace Seller.
