Salvia microphylla ‘Heatwave Glow’ is a neat and tidy shrub for any garden bed.

Flowers: are a beautiful warm pale orange typical microphylla type flower with the two side lobes and the edge of the skirt a darker orange, giving the flower a warm glow. The bottom lobes turn down with a lighter bee line coming from the throat.
Although flowering most of the year, the main flowering period would be over the summer/ autumn period. Very bee, butterfly and insect friendly.
Calyces: have a brownish calyx, which helps to set off the orange colour nicely.
Leaves: are midgreen, a rounder type of shape with small crenations along the edges. Most stems are well clothed. Stems are very upright.

Salvia microphylla ‘Heatwave ‘Glow‘ is a good small shrubby addition to a small or medium sized garden. Plant either at the front of the bed or as a  hedge in a border. The warm colouring of Salvia  Heatwave ‘Glow’ pars extremely well with other vivid blue and purple  perennials. It looks great as a background planting to low blue or white coloured  groundcovers.

Grows best in full sun. Mulch well to keep the root area cool. This is  a good tough Salvia for the dry summer heat and winter cold, also  tolerating  a light frost.

Pruning: should be done at the end of summer or the beginning of autumn. Clean out any dead wood or twiggy stems, then cut back to a good green bud. The flowers will return when the new growth matures.
Propagation: As this is a PBR variety, this  Salvia cannot be propagated without a license .
