Salvia campanulata GWJ9232
15 seeds per packet.
A robust, clump-forming perennial collected from Lachen Valley, Eastern Sikkim at 3100m by Sally Goddard, Bleddyn & Sue Wynn-Jones. Produces a large, basal rosette of heart-shaped, roughly textured leaves and upright spikes of bright yellow and purple tinged flowers from July into September. Fantastic plant for bees and other insects. Height 100 cm. Well-drained, humus rich soil in full sun to part shade.
Sow from March to June. Cover seed thinly, press in gently and keep top of compost from drying out. Keep pot warm at 15 to 20°C until germination, then move to somewhere cooler.
Carefully prick out seedlings when they have developed true leaves and are large enough to transplant to individual pots to grow on.
