Sage curviflora'Tubular Bells'(Salvia curviflora'Tubular Bells') Herb in 1 litre Pot

Sage curviflora 'Tubular Bells' is so called for its large softly curved dropping flowers which are hot magenta-pink on tall dark stems. This sage is an eye catching addition to any sunny spot in the garden and the beautiful bright display lasts all summer into Autumn. As with most sages the bonus is the leaves have a pleasing fragrance too.  A great container plant and would brighten up any Herb Garden or Patio, thrives in full sun and will tolerate part shade. As this Salvia originates from Mexico its not the hardiest of Salvias, and will need protecting in cold winters.

The best time to plant out salvias is from late May to early June, or as soon as possible after the risk of late spring frosts have passed. This gives your plants the maximum time to establish and get their roots down before winter. If you purchase your plants late in the season, they are best kept frost free and planted out the following spring, once all risk of frost has passed.

Salvias are reasonably hardy if planted in a sheltered sunny position. The soil should not be too rich, and they will not tolerate water-logging over winter so drainage must be good. It is advisable to take a few cuttings in late summer as insurance. If  you live in a particularly exposed site then the tender salvias can be lifted, potted and grown on under protection in a greenhouse or conservatory.

Salvias are pretty easy to grow, but some are brittle and need support when planted out in an open or windy position. Dead-head regularly to promote more new flowers. Only trim back and tidy your established Salvias in late spring, once new growth has started and the risk of frosts has passed.

Herb Usage

Sage has been used for centuries as a culinary herb. Sage curvifolia is grown as a perennial herb plant primarily for its flowers, which are highly attractive to bees and butterflies.
