Salvia Elegans

Salvia elegans, also known as pineapple sage, is a beautiful and popular flowering plant that is known for its long-lasting blooms and its attractive foliage. It is native to Mexico and Central America, but is now grown in many parts of the world.

Salvia elegans typically grows to be 18-24 inches tall and wide. It has a compact, bushy habit of growth and glossy, green leaves. The leaves are oval-shaped and have a serrated margin. In the summer and early fall, Salvia elegans produces spikes of tubular flowers. The flowers are typically red, but can also be orange, pink, or white. The flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Salvia elegans is a relatively low-maintenance plant. It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is also drought-tolerant once established. Salvia elegans does not require much pruning, but can be pruned in the spring to remove dead or damaged stems.

Salvia elegans is a great choice for a variety of landscaping uses. It can be planted in beds, borders, or containers. It is also a good choice for planting in rock gardens and cottage gardens. Salvia elegans is also a popular cut flower.

Here are some tips for growing Salvia elegans:

  • Choose a planting site that receives full sun to partial shade and has well-drained soil.
  • Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter before planting.
  • Water regularly, especially during the first growing season.
  • Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Prune in the spring to remove dead or damaged stems.

With proper care, Salvia elegans can thrive for many years and add beauty to any landscape.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
