Salvia ‘Wendy’s Wish’

Salvia hybrida

Salvia ‘Wendy’s Wish’ is prized for its flaming magenta tubular blooms held on dark maroon stems. This quick growing sage has a tidy, compact, slightly open habit of 40″ x 40″. Large mid-green glossy foliage provides a rich contrast to the hot pink flaming blooms that do not fade in the hottest conditions. The blooms are sterile which contribute to the long floriferous bloom time. ‘Wendy’s Wish’ has great impact in the landscape in massed beds or in patio pots or containers.
