Salvia Bethellii


(Salvia involucrata ‘Bethellii’)


Bethel Sage produces large bright pink flowers over summer and autumn. It is a large plant with attractive green leaves and is an asset in the garden.


The bright pink flowers form at the end of the long stems from early summer to late autumn.


Grows best in a sunny position in a wide range of soil types. Use in a perennial bed or behind low growing shrubs.


Prune hard in mid spring – after the last frost.


Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed over spring and summer will keep it looking its best.
