Botanical Name:Salvia microphylla 'Ribambelle'
Salvia ‘Ribambelle’ is a small, compact rounded shrub that may reach 70cm high and 70 cm wide. This salvia has most unusual coloured blooms of salmon- coral pink, touched with white at the throat. They are held on a 20 cm long inflorescence over a continuous flowering period that is heaviest over summer and autumn. The green leaves are oval shaped, toothed and quite small. It is hardy to -10C in cold regions. The bracts have a touch of brown-orange at the tips and the buds are a deep pink-salmon just before the flower opens. The salmon flowers are truly beautiful and delicate, aging to a more peach-pink. It prefers a well drained soil and full sun.
‘Ribambelle’ has been developed in France and there is not a great deal of information available. However, the RHS in the United Kingdom classifies this salvia as S. microphylla of Mexican origins. The word ‘ribambelle’ translates to ‘swarm’ in French. It seems fitting as many people describe the floral display as a collection of butterflies hovering over the tall flower stalks.
The salvia family has over 900 members with an extensive history as culinary, medicinal and ornamental plants. Ornamental salvias have become collectors items, as gardeners try to find a place in their garden for each and every one. There are salvias that will suit every type of soil and climate. More information on the Salvia genus and Common Sage (Salvia officinalis) may be found on our Common Sage page.
