Planting And Care


  • Most salvia like lots of suns, although a few species tolerate very light shade.
  • If your garden does not have adequate drainage, mix stones, gravel or lava rock into the bottom of the hole when you plant your salvia.
  • Using a trowel, dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the pot the salvia transplant is in.
  • Loosen the roots of the salvia, spread them out in the hole, and backfill them with soil mixed with compost.
  • Be sure to water the young plants regularly until they are fully grown so that they don t dry out.
  • Prune the heavier, woody stems every spring.

Salvia Splendens Red Care

Plant in average or enriched soil and fertilize as needed.
Over a long season, flowers will drop, leaving a ragged spike. When this happens, cut the plant back. New growth emerges refreshed.
Snails and slugs find salvia to be a delicious treat, especially in moist conditions and when the plants are mulched.

SunlightIn cooler climates, plant in full sun.
In areas with very hot summers, partial shade, especially in the afternoon, reduces stress.
