“Salvia ‘Salgoon Lake Como’ is a captivating perennial renowned for its compact size, aromatic foliage, and stunning deep purple-blue flowers, which add elegance to British gardens. Growing to a height of 45-60cm, it forms a dense clump of lance-shaped, gray-green leaves that emit a pleasant fragrance when brushed. From early summer to autumn, this variety produces spikes of tubular flowers that are highly attractive to bees, butterflies, and other pollinators due to their abundant nectar.

Best planted in full sun and well-drained soil, ‘Salgoon Lake Como’ thrives in borders, rockeries, or containers, where its vibrant blooms can be showcased effectively. It is tolerant of dry conditions once established and benefits from occasional watering during dry spells.

Maintenance for ‘Salgoon Lake Como’ is straightforward; deadhead spent flowers regularly throughout the blooming season to encourage continuous flowering. Pruning to maintain shape and remove any dead or damaged stems should be carried out in early spring. Feeding with a balanced fertilizer in spring supports vigorous growth and enhances flower production.

Beyond its ornamental value, Salvia ‘Salgoon Lake Como’ plays a crucial role in supporting local bee populations by providing a reliable source of nectar. Its resilience and ecological benefits make it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens across the UK, contributing to pollination efforts and enhancing biodiversity.”
