Salvia 'Roman Red'
A real eye-catcher in the garden thanks to its bright, ruby red flowers set against mid red foliage. With its more compact, mounded habit than other varieties, it is perfect for beds, borders and patio pots. To get the most of its aromatic foliage, plant near paths.

Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
