  1. Salvia africana lutea

    Salvia africana-lutea is a very hardy, evergreen, small- to medium-sized shrub with aromatic, grey leaves.

    Clusters of unusual brown, funnel shaped flowers are borne from June to December, and when the flowers fall off a decorative, purplish calyx remains. The copious nectar offered by the flowers attracts insects and Sunbirds to the garden.

    It is an attractive, easy plant to grow and forms beautiful silvery clumps.

    Plant in well-drained soil in full sun or semi-shade and water in winter. This tough plant tolerates very dry conditions and should not be overwatered.

    Prune regularly to keep it in shape.

    Size: 50 to 75cm
