Salvia - Oasis
This is the ultimate red Salvia for landscaping. The stocky plants have a bushy basal branching habit, vivid red flower spikes and rich green foliage, creating a vibrant display in borders and containers all summer, continuing into early Autumn.
Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks.
