Description

This Salvia named ‘Amante’ meaning 'Lover' in Spanish, is a standing out from the pack with this breeding breakthrough. ‘Amante’ has a stunning fuchsia red flower spike appearing from dark almost black calyx above deep green foliage. A very useful and easy garden plant, flowering for very long periods & will grow from Hobart to Cairns. In the warmer climates, it flowers all year round. In cooler climates, it may become semi dormant. Salvia Amante is compact and has a fuller habit. It is easy to grow and responds well to trimming.  Bird and bee attracting. Waterwise once established

Care
