This easygoing flowering sage comes from Mexico and the high deserts of southern USA, so it should cope with the hot-and-cold extremes of an Aussie climate. Little red flowers twice a year usually, spring and autumn, and occasionally at other times where the climate is mild. In poor soil with little rain it's a compact shrub; in rich soil and regular irrigation it will grow larger.

Salvia microphylla 'Huntington Red' - Mexican sage

APPEARANCE: Small-leaved shrubby perennial sage with aromatic foliage and small red blooms with prominent lower petals in spring and again in autumn.
USE IN: Cottage style gardens, mixed beds and borders, wildlife gardens, pots and tubs.
PLANTING: Plant in a full sun to partly shaded position in the garden, in rich soil. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Water regularly in dry periods. A sheltered position will help keep the plant looking good.
CARE: Clip over after flowering, to encourage fresh growth and more flowers. Cut it hard back in summer, almost to the ground, when it has a rest from blooming. Fertilise in spring using a slow release fertiliser, give an extra boost during the summer heat using eco-seaweed. Tolerant of light overnight frost once established. Protect from hard frost and mulch in winter to keep soil warm.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  to 1m H x 1m W depending on conditions.
YOUR PLANTS: These are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
