  • Strong blackcurrant scented leaves and masses of flowers perfect for a border or pot. Grow in a sunny sheltered spot in well drained soil or in a container.
  • Salvia Cherry Lips is as the name suggests, a bi-colour of Cherry pink and white. It is in the series of the ‘Lips’ Salvias along with Hot Lips and Amethyst Lips.
