Botanical Name:Salvia longispicata x farinacea
Mystic Spires is a compact perennial salvia, which may be grown as an annual in some parts of the world. It has an upright habit and grows 50 - 80 cm tall and 50cm wide. The parent plants are S. longispicata and S. farinacea.
Mystic Spires is the dwarf form of the larger Indigo Spires, so many features are similar. It is said to be one of the most heat and drought tolerant of all salvias. The preferred growing conditions are full sun, with moist but well drained soil. The flowering period is over summer and it continues to flowers if dead headed. It can be cut back after flowering to tidy up its appearance or to encourage a flush of new flowers and growth.
This salvia is low maintenance and is also an excellent bedding and container plant. As noted above, some regions that experience cold conditions may not be suitable for growth all year round. Alternatively, the plant may die down and return in spring.
The salvia family has over 900 members with an extensive history as culinary, medicinal and ornamental plants. Ornamental salvias have become collectorsí 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.
