Salvia 'Amistad'


Salvia 'Amistad' (Salvia)

This is a newly-bred Salvia - I believe it's a cross.

Isn't it just! It's a new one, and should be hardy, but I shall protect the roots with a thick mulch.

i think that is going to be very popular!! its just amazing.

11 Sep, 2011

 

Yes, I think so too - I saw its photo in the new RHS magazine. :-)

Wow - fantastic!

What did they put it with? Or what will you put it with?

11 Sep, 2011

 

Ooooooooooh! :))))))

It's in my back garden, which is purple, gold and white.

They just showed a photo of it in the magazine as a new plant! :-0)

everytime i look at it i think it is fantastic!! very royal with gold and white ~ very elegant

although im not a pink person i can see this with some sort of tiny pink flowers but im not sure what that would fit at this time of year??

Virginian Stock or Candytuft maybe?

i dont know really it is so majestic maybe it should just stand alone and be admired!!

What a grand salvia! Sounds to be paired well too. I love blues with gold.

A beautiful colour......

Sooo gorgeous...

14 Sep, 2011

 

Im green!! Stunning, gorgeous, amazing..what else is left to say.
I sincerely hope you will have these for sale next NGS year Spritz...and one has my name on it!

No chance, Tetra - sorry. I don't think there's any cuttings material on it as it's so young.

It is a lovely plant, and I wish I'd bought a second one now. I expect they'll be generally available next year though.

15 Sep, 2011

 

Doh! Not if this lot get in first...perhaps we should bulk purchase?

15 Sep, 2011

 

Good thinking! :-))

15 Sep, 2011

 

I hope you manage to get it through the winter - it's just gorgeous, what suppliers are selling this?

16 Sep, 2011

 

According to the RHS 'plantfinder', only Hayloft, but I got mine from T3 Plants - www.T3plants.co.uk

Truly beautiful Spritz...Gone on to my favs as a reminder...:>)

I haven't come across this one in any of the online NZ nurseries or the GC I have visited. It's quite stunning.

20 Sep, 2011

 

Well, I suppose if it's newly bred, you might find it next year. :-)

20 Sep, 2011

 

I have bought one from Hayloft Spritz....It arrived this morning...:>)

Well done - I hope it's a good sized plant?

I did so admire this plant, when you posted this image last year and was really pleased when I managed to get one of these at the end of last year at a specialist plant fayre. I took some cuttings and overwintered the main plant in the greenhouse. On close inspection it does appear to be alive as I was quite dubious about it being hardy, although not showing any signs of growth yet. How is your plant doing Spritz. Have you managed to get it through the winter OK?

No...I'm so sad about it, but I seem to have lost an awful lot this year - the latest loss is my lavenders, which didn't appreciate being flooded.

I might get another Salvia 'Amistad'...isn't that good that I typed in the Nursery! :-D)
