    Description

    Color your garden purple with vigorous, vivid, violet blooms of Salvia ‘Amistad’, a garden performer that blooms profusely throughout the season from spring through fall.

    Amistad Sage is a Salvia guaranitica hybrid with a friendly manner and eager to please. The Friendship Sage is fuller with a longer bloom period that starts earlier, and has a root system that is more restrained than other guaranitica sage types like ‘Black and Blue’ or ‘Argentine Skies’. The deep purple tubular flowers with black calyxes on 8-10 inch flower spikes bloom constantly. Pollinator-friendly, Salvia ‘Amistad’ attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.

    Fast growing, Salvia 'Amistad' is an upright, well-branched herbaceous perennial with glossy green leaves. In mild, frost-free climates (USDA zone 10-11), the Friendship Sage is evergreen but will go deciduous if temperatures go below 35℉. Winter hardy to 20℉.

    Low maintenance and easy to grow, this bushy Friendship Sage gets as tall as 5 ft. by 4 ft. wide when in bloom and looks great along walkways, in mixed borders, or mass plantings. Suited to meadow or cottage style landscapes and useful in pollinator-friendly gardens. Order today and make Salvia ‘Amistad’ your BFF (best flower forever).

    Plant care

    Salvia 'Amistad' is easy to grow. Plant in a location with full sun and well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly to develop a strong root system. Requires moderate to regular water and perhaps some afternoon shade in hotter inland climates for best performance and appearance.

    Pruning may not be required in mild, frost-free climates, but cutting back in early spring when new growth is evident will help maintain the size and a bushy shape. A mid-season prune or dead-heading will promote new growth. Fertilize in early spring after pruning.

    Salvia 'Amistad' PP23578 is a patented hybrid sage, asexual reproduction is prohibited. The plant patent expires in 2031.
