Salvia blepharophylla (Eyelash Sage) Herb in 1L Pot

The eyelash-like hairs on the edge of the leaves give this striking Salvia its name, and it really is quite a remarkable looking specimen. It is a half-hardy herbaceous perennial, with a spreading habit, and its leaves are triangular, toothed and hairy, and are a lovely dark green in colour.

From early summer into autumn it has slender, branched, purple-flushed stems bearing loose racemes of bright scarlet flowers with large lower lips.

A great addition to the garden Eyelash Sage prefers a sunny spot flourishing in a well drained border or in a large pot is ideal as it can be given some overwinter protection in exposed areas. The Ideal time for cutting back flowering shrub sages, is the spring once new growth can be seen and risk of frost has past. Cut up to half the plant back shaping as needed. If Sages are becoming leggy then a light summer cut may be required to encourage flowers and new growth. Dead heading the old flowers will encourage new flowers all season.

Herb Usage

Sage has been used for centuries as a culinary herb, Eyelash Sage is grown as a perennial herb plant primarily for its flowers, which are highly attractive to bees and butterflies. However, the leaves and flowers can be used in the kitchen to flavour baking or summer drinks.
