For eye-catching colour in your summer borders or patio containers look no further than the Salvia jamensis 'Hot Lips'. This beautiful, bushy perennial has the most delightful open-mouthed red and white bicolour blooms which when the weather is very hot will erupt into colours of solid red and solid white flowers. Savia microphylla 'Hot Lips' is a hardy perennial, but will appreciate some protection from winter weather, especially during very cold, wet periods. With a blackcurrant fragrance from the aromatic foliage this charming plant adds bright colour to your cottage garden borders or containers and can be incorporated into bedding schemes too, providing a wonderful vibrant summer display which will continue to the first frosts. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Although perennial, Salvia x jamensis 'Hot Lips' will appreciate some winter protection in all but the mildest areas of the UK, especially during very cold, wet periods. When growing Salvia ‘Hot Lips’ in containers, it can be moved to a cold greenhouse or conservatory over the winter months. Prune lightly in late spring when new growth appears to remove dead stems and maintain a bushy habit.
Salvia plants prefer a moist, but well-drained soil in full sun, although once established they can also be very drought resistant. This Salvia will appreciate a sheltered position with protection from strong winds.
