& Maintenance Tips

Salvia grows best in moist, fertile, well-drained soil.  It needs at least 6 hours of sun a day for best results, and midday shade is beneficial.  It is better to water once a week too deeply than to water frequently for only a few minutes.  Occasional deadheading will promote continued flowering.
