There are more than 900 species of Salvia and Salvia involucrata ‘Mulberry Jam’ has crimson pink flowers and leaves that are ovate with purplish backs and deep green tops. The plant is tolerant of moderate frosts, grows well in full sun to a partly shaded position and responds well to summer watering. A medium prune after flowering and regular applications of  Seasol and Power Feed will keep it looking its best.


Mulberry Jam has bright pink flowers that are present from early summer to late autumn.  It has a more upright habit than the species and is a little smaller in only reaching 1.2m tall.   Salvia are closely related to Lavandula and Rosmarinus and as such work well together in the garden. Plant with other Salvia like Tequila Blue or Salvia madrensis for a large colourful background hedge or in a large bed of assorted Penstemon and Lavender.
