Salvia elegans

For sale by Jeremy Chadwick

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Pineapple sage - pineapple scented leaves, and really vivid red flowers, not like photo (website picked a photo of the wrong species)! 2 smaller pots each contain 3 plants, which were cuttings from the mother plant in the big pot. Big pot is a 34cm diameter bell pot (terracotta colour plastic), small pot is just a plain black 3L pot. One small pot was indoors for the worst of winter, plants are much happier looking than in the other small pot or the big pot.
