The Salvia greggi genus is native to Mexico and can reach one metre in height. Salvia greggi 'Icing Sugar' is a horticultural shrub sage which has a more compact, lower habit. From June to October its dark floral buds produce delicate bicolour fuchsia flowers with light pink inner lips.
If you're looking for an avalanche of colour to grow in a pot or mixed border, why not try Geranium 'Rozanne' + Agastache 'Blue Fortune' + Salvia greggi 'Icing Sugar'? A fabulous threesome when everything else in the garden is wilting in the summer heat.
