Botanical Name:

Salvia Purple Majesty is an open growing shrub like salvia with a free branching habit. It may grow 1-1.3 in height, with a spread of 50cm, taking from 2-5 years to reach full size. The 2.5-5 cm tubular and hooded flowers are a rich shade of purple and appear in late spring until the end of autumn. They are held in loose spikes and the flowers all face in one direction. The calyces are a dark purple with white and green markings. The mid to light green leaves are heart shaped and set in alternate pairs.

The parent plants of Purple Majesty are thought to be S. guarantica (Anise Scented) and S. gesneriiflora (Tequila or Scarlet Sage). This salvia is often mistaken for salvia Black Knight, which is a larger plant. If Black Knight is too big for your garden, Purple Majesty might be the better choice.

Growing Conditions

Purple Majesty will tolerate partial shade and in hotter some regions this may be beneficial. However, generally full sun is preferred for the best growth. Like many salvias, Purple Majesty does not like wet feet, so excessive moisture should be avoided by planting in well drained soil. It may also need protection from frosty conditions. Most soil types are suitable for this saliva.

Due to the free growing habit of Purple Majesty, the plant may need support from other plants or loose staking. This may be more important in windy conditions, but this salvia does benefit from being in a sheltered position. The flowers appear from November through to April in the different regions of Australia.

In winter the plant can be pruned hard and simply tidied up at other times of the year. Softwood cuttings taken in spring can be used for propagation. Although it is referred to as a clumping plant, this salvia does not have tubers or spreading root systems.

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.

    Salvia Varieties

    I recently received my two lovely little salvia specimens in the mail from Mudbrick Herb Cottage. I was very impressed with how well the plants were packaged and they are already thriving with new growth in my garden! I have been searching for a range of purple salvias for quite some time now, with no luck at local nurseries and garden centres. So I was pleasantly surprised when I found that Herb Cottage not only offer a spectacular variety of colours but that I could order online. I was a little dubious at first about receiving plants in the post, but they arrived quickly and were healthy and intake with moist soil. I will definitely order from Herb Cottage again. The prices were great, as was the service and quality. Thank you!
