Salvias

This group of plants is undoubtedly one of the world’s most popular and fascinating genera, Salvia ‘Amistad’ being the best-selling favourite that we have exclusively introduced! Every year we offer a selection of new hybrids that are often an improvement on older varieties or totally different than what has been seen before. It’s important that we provide a range of colours that have instant appeal to the consumer but also plants that grow well in commerce. In our ever-growing collection there are lots of nice garden plants but often they don't lend themselves to container production and so are subsequently taken out. Keep an eye here for new releases as we are not short of new varieties yet!

An NWP introduction into the UK.

Unusual leathery foliage which is scented with open mouthed pale blue flowers

Salvia-Amante

Salvia Amante

PBR applied for –US Patent PP31104

A follow on from ‘Amistad’, and we hope will follow in its footsteps but unique having the first red flower pigmentation. An equally tall plant that flowers late summer with numerous Fuchsia pink flowers and a dark calyx.

Prefers a dry sunny location with a well-drained soil. Will go dormant in winter. 1.2m x 90cm.

Flowering late summer until first frosts. 1.2m x 90cm

Salvia-Amistad

Salvia Amistad

PBR EU 35867 - US Patent: PP23578

An NWP introduction.

The most spectacular Salvia todate by far.

Gorgeous deep velvety purple flowers emerging from almost black calyx. Sterile, free flowering and much earlier than the ‘look-alikes’.

Cold tolerant to -8oC so far! 1.2m x 90cm.

Salvia guaranitica Animo

Salvia Animo

An NWP introduction.

Our latest hybrid which we are very proud of. This is an outstanding colour form with a deep royal blue rack of flowers having an even darker calyx than ‘Amistad’.

Very regal and showy a must to include in most borders or large pots. 1.2m x 90cm.

Salvia-Beyond-Blue

Salvia Beyond Blue

Patent applied for.

An NWP hybrid.

Another real winner we have selected from the patens spp. This hybrid is so special in having a very compact habit and is self-branching. Leaves are bold & triangular shaped with very large clear ice blue flowers that go on to first frosts.

A great patio plant, that goes dormant in winter and will re generate from a tuber if given a light mulch over for protection. 50 cm x 50cm.

Salvia-Black-and-Blue

Salvia Black and Blue

This older hybrid has had a new lease of life after the successful introduction of Amistad.

It is however inferior to ‘Amistad’ as it is not sterile and has a blue colour tone rather than the rich Purple its competitor has. When compared side by side it is a very different plant and flowers slightly later. 1.2m x 75cm

Salvia-Blue-Butterflies

Salvia Blue Butterflies

An NWP introduction.

This is a very different Salvia in every respect to what is seen in the commercial market. This was a deliberate cross between two species which has resulted in this very pretty hybrid. It is a tall flowering plant with trailing branches that benefits from a little support (but not essential), leaves are large and triangular shaped. Flowers are vivid gentian blue, from mid-summer onwards.

Needs protection over winter. 1.2m x 90cm.

Salvia-Blue-Merced

Salvia Blue Merced

A wonderful Salvia with unusually large rounded flowers deep lilac mauve in colour. Quite a striking plant because of the bloom size and colour.

Good for mixing with silver foliage plants and also in pots for patio displays. 55 cm x 45cm.

Salvia-Cherry-Pie

Salvia Cherry Pie

An NWP introduction.

Gorgeous colour that makes this an appealing plant.

Deep cherry purple flowers with dark green veined leaves. 50cm x 40cm.

Salvia-Clotted-Cream

Salvia Clotted Cream

An NWP introduction.

A compact plant which seems less brittle and is very attractive.

Rich creamy flowers that fit the name. 50cm x 40cm.

Salvia-Cool-Cream

Salvia Cool Cream

An NWP introduction.

A beautiful new hybrid with large rich creamy white flowers almost ‘buttermilk' in colour, which compliments our other new hybrids such as ‘Cool Pink’.

Useful for planting in pot combos with other similar pastel coloured varieties. 55cm x 45cm.
