Main asset

A blooming color very bright purple, with petioles dark purple in contrast. Very aromatic foliage, exceptional resistance to dryness.


Make a short prunning in early spring when the vegetation starts.

Shrubby sage with magnificent wine-purple blooming, 6 months a year. The upper lip of the corolla is wider than most varieties. This variety is the result of the crossing of Salvia microphylla 'Royal Bumble' x Salvia grahamii 'Violette', made in our crops by our staff. It has kept from the first the erected habit, thick and weather-resistant solid wood, and from the second the purple color and hardiness.
