Sage 'Amistad' (Salvia 'Amistad') Herb in 1L Pot

Sage Amistad is a relatively new addition to the available salvia range and is also known as the 'friendship sage' from Argentina.  It is a strong growing plant with attractive bright purple flowers with dark stems growing up to 1m-1.5m in height given the right growing conditions. Sage 'Amistad' prefers a sunny spot flourishing in a well drained border or in a large pot. 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. Dead heading the old flowers will encourage new flowers all season.

Herb Usage

Sage has been used for centuries as a culinary herb. Sage 'Amistad' 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 to flavour food and drinks

    Plant came well packaged and in good condition. I have potted it on into a larger container. It was a bit root bound.
