A chance seedling discovered by a salvia enthusiast in Victoria - S. 'Wendy's Wish' flowers for a lengthy season (warmer months) displaying large, vibrant magenta flowers which are tubular and capped by a colourful calyx which remain some time after flowering extending its interest even longer. Mid green foliage is dense with a lush appearance with complimentary dark maroon stems.
Low. Once established, quite dry tolerant requiring only occasional long soak during extended periods of heat.
Grows well in most soil types but thrives in fertile, well draining soils. Trim off around one third of overall size in early spring to maintain shape and encourage a dense, bushy habit. An application of slow release fertiliser in early spring is recommended for best results
