Daily Flower Candy: Salvia ‘Amistad’

Today, I’ve been sweltering in the heat at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. So many exciting plants to see, but one of the first that caught my eye was Salvia ‘Amistad’. Tall, purplish stems are topped with large, tubular violet-blue flowers emerging from almost black buds. Combined with fiery orange and yellow dahlias it would make quite a statement in a summer border.

  1. As luck would have it …. just brought this salvia from Sampford Shrubs and although yet to flower after seeing your blog I am even more convinced it was a good buy!

    1. It was! Won’t tell you how much it was going for at Hampton Court, but some nurseries were almost giving it away. Must be a surplus somewhere. I resisted, although didn’t come away completely empty handed 😉
