So Cool Pale Blue

Close up of Salvia Cool Pale Blue

We have been trialling plants from this excellent Australian series since 2014. They are the result of a controlled breeding programme by Steve Eggleton and Howard Bentley of Plant Growers Australia Pty Ltd in Wonga Park, Victoria, Australia.

They set out to produce new woody Salvias in cool colours, ranging from pale blue to deep purple. We have been extremely impressed by their hardiness and sheer flower-power.

This variety is the best by far and has the most gorgeous pale mauve-blue flowers in spectacular abundance. It has a compact, bushy habit and is well suited to the front of a sunny border or for container culture.

We will be launching it at Hampton Court Flower Show in July and will have plants available thereafter.
