'Flammenn', has been selected:
- for its extremely even, compact and well-branched, straight and high shape.
- and for its early flower heads, made up of big, bright red flowers from May to the first frosts.
The elongated dark green leaves are semi-evergreen and naturally aromatic.
An easy plant for the garden, in well draining soil, also tolerates being planted in a pot. The Salvia range on sale by SAPHO offer a beautiful palette of colours.
Spring pruning is essential, but only after the hard frosts are finished. Trim the plants back by half to 30 or 40 cm.
Pick off wilted flowers, allowing a summer flowering of better quality.
