Salvia 'Wendy's Wish'
Stunning Container Plant
USDA Zone 8b-11
Wendy's Wish is one of the newest hybrids on the market. It grows as an upright sub-shrub with highly fragrant foliage. The blooms begin in mid-summer and continue through the fall. The bloom color is an eye-popping magenta-pink that remain on the salvia for several days. Wendy's Wish has been bred to bloom constantly over a long period...often blooming until well into fall.
The salvia is hardy in USDA Zone 8b through 11b in the landscape and makes an excellent container plant in the northern zones.
At maturity, the salvia will most often reach 24-26" tall and grow to approximately 18" wide.
Salvias have been grown since ancient times. Our primary purpose is to enjoy the beautiful addition of color in the home garden. The salvias we grow are most commonly from Texas, the Southwest and Mexico. These are highly ornamental, heat tolerant, and have moderate to low moisture needs. We consider these plants critical components of any Hummingbird, Bee and/or Butterfly Garden.
Almost all of the plants should be grown to receive a minimum of 4 to 6 hours of sun, but tend to bloom more profusely in high shade or partial shade. All of our salvia plants have proven to be pest and disease-free, require very little maintenance in the garden, and because many have scented foliage, are considered deer-resistant.
Salvias accept multiple soils including clay, but the plants do benefit from a side-dressing of compost prior to bloom cycle.
These salvias are third season plants and have bloomed in the container. As much top-growth as possible will be retained for shipping.
Excess soil will be removed prior to shipping. Roots will be wrapped in dampened materials and encased in plastic for shipping. Each plant bundle is labeled with botanical and common names when applicable.
