Cerise Salvia


By Siris

Cerise Salvia (Salvia microphylla)

First Salvia to start flowering, Cerise colour, don't know it's name, a microphylla? A Spiraea japonica behind with golden foliage and will have cerise flowers too. Back fence border.

That is early! Did you cut back the Salvia at all?

Yes I do cut them back in Autumn after they've finished flowering, but not into the thick old wood.

That’s good to know, thanks Siris.

Have decided to take out most of our Salvias.......time for a change....

Dd, i can understand that. They do get very large and very woody quickly. I have been renewing with cuttings.

Going to grow the smaller shrubby varieties......possibly keep the odd shorter ones....but we don’t have the space and time to keep taking cuttings.....
