Show-stopping colour for late summer, into autumn
If you are looking for an easy to grow, prolific flowering show-stopper to provide colour in late summer / autumn, you'll be inspired by the Salvia Collection. Not only do Salvia’s come in a range of sizes but a rainbow of colours – and if you look closely at the flowers they are extraordinarily beautiful.
Salvias are popular in gardens for their colour, tolerance for dry conditions and attractiveness to insects. Mass planted salvias with their spiky inflorescences make a stunning impact.
Visit one of New Zealand's largest public salvia collection and enjoy the different colours, movement and rhythms of plants from the same lineage, but different origins, across different continents. Everything displayed in our collections at Auckland Botanic Gardens has been successfully trialled and will grow well in your Auckland home garden.
