Salvia leucantha 'Santa Barbara'
Salvia leucantha 'Santa Barbara' is a compact grower. Slightly tender for us but we have had it growing here for the last twenty odd years! Plant 'Santa Barbara' in full sun and well drained soils. As with other perennial salvia, it tends to grow best where the soil is undernourished.
The flowering is lengthy, from mid to late summer in cooler parts of the country grow it in a tub in a sunny sheltered position.
