Meigan's Magic is a chance hybrid discovered in 2005 in the garden of Robyn and Ian Powell at Mylor, South Australia. Named after their grand daughter, Meigan, the young seedling was found under Salvia leucantha which is assumed to be one parent, but the other is unknown.
Meigan's Magic is a rounded shrub to 1.4m x 1.4m that likes a sunny aspect in a well drained soil enriched with good compost. The white flowers contrast with the rich navy blue calyces from spring until first frost. It is tolerant of moderate frosts and dry periods but responds well to an occasional summer watering. Prune back to new basal growth in early spring to maintain bushy vigorous growth and then feed in mid spring and early autumn with Osmocote Slow Release.
Meigan’s Magic looks good planted with similar Salvia like Waverly and Phyllis’ Fancy or as a background to a low growing bed of Penstemon and lavender.
