Salvia x jamensis “Javier”
Growing to about 30”/ 75cm, “Javier” is a beautiful light violet, lighter than “Nachtvlinder” but not a lavender. Its foliage is also lighter in color.
It seems to come into flower a little bit later than most of the others and to stop later as well. The shrubs are fairly compact and give a good punch of color.
It is hardy here, but, a word of warning: it looks quite miserable after the winter. Do not be dismayed; a light pruning will soon see it covered in leaves and growing vigorously.
