Zesty summer colour and scentOne of a trio of new sisters to the famous 'Amistad', Salvia 'Animo' will have passers-by giving admiring glances. Very dark, almost black stems and calyces hold an abundance of open-mouthed, nectar-rich blooms in the brightest shade of royal blue. An incredible contrast which is further enhanced when set against the mounds of bright green foliage.Attracting bees, butterflies and other pollinators to your garden, the mounds of green sage-scented foliage which form beneath release a perfume when disturbed and are resisted by deer.A favourite with florists, the stems last well in a vase when cut and make a great addition to your dramatic and colourful indoor arrangements. Reaching a height of 1.2m and spreading to 75cm, like her well-known sisters, Salvia 'Amino' is easy to grow, preferring moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade. A half-hardy perennial, with an RHS hardiness rating of H3, which require winter protection in cooler regions as temperatures dip below -5 C.
