Variety Profile

A range of salvias aptly dubbed the ‘HEATWAVE’ range was introduced as a direct response to the current dry climate faced by Australian gardeners. Salvias are only too well know worldwide as a waterwise family of plants that revel in sunshine and dry, open soils.

The HEATWAVE range takes todays gardening requirements one step further being purposely bred to retain a compact habit as many forms of salvia greggii typically present with more open habits which, whilst still effective in the right position, relegate their use to background planting or intermingling in a loose perennial border.

The tighter foliage of the HEATWAVE salvias allows them to be a given more prominent location in a garden setting which they well deserve considering they provide colour all through the warmer months right through autumn.

Cultural Care

Easy to grow in most soil types which are well draining. 
Water requirements are low once established requiring only an occasional long soak during extended periods of heat. 
Prune after main flowering to encourage faster re-bloom and a comact habit. Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring to improve overall vigour.
