Salvia mexicana

Salvia mexicana Limelight Salvia mexicana Limelight

The electric color combo of rich purple 2.5” flowers and vibrant lime green calyces held on a mass of upright 12" spikes make this one of the most lusted after Salvias. A big fellow and a late bloomer, 'Limelight' grows up to 6' x 6' to steal the show from August to January. Dramatic even prior to bloom with densely held, fairly large deep blue-green heart-shaped foliage. Cut back hard in Winter – early Spring to promote bushiness. Can be cut back in Summer for shorter stature. Side dress with compost in Spring. Hummers! Good cut flowers! Root hardy to 20F.
