Compact Salvia, delicate due to its jellow - brown contrast from May to October.

Description

'Melen' has been chosen:
- for its extremely even, compact and well-branched shape.
- and for its early and abundant flowering from May to the first frosts.   
The colours of the flowers bring orginality to the Salvia range: the corolla is pale yellow and the edge of the top lip orange in contrast with the dark brown calyx.
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.

Care

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.
