Sage 'Royal Bumble' (Salvia x jamensis 'Royal Bumble') Herb in 1 Litre Pot 

Thriving in summer heat, Sage ‘'Royal Bumble'’ produces a generous display of vivid red flowers on purple black stems, which bloom above a compact and vigorous plant approx 75cm high from May to November. It is a form of Salvia x jamensis, a complex hybrid involving the cross of three or more species which is found naturally in areas of Mexico.

These tender perennials form bushy clumps of small, elliptical foliage which is evergreen to semi-evergreen if not cut back by frost. The leaves are borne on branched, woody-based stems with root readily when they touch the ground. Loose spikes of flared, tubular, two-lipped flowers appear above the foliage throughout summer and autumn, and are irresistible to bees.

The Ideal time for cutting back flowering shrub sages, is the spring once new growth can be seen from the base 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.
