Salvia ‘Coral Nymph’

( From L-R: faded Coral Nymph Salvia bloom and new bloom)

I love Salvias and this annual type that I’ve grown from seed the past two summers is no exception.  The name is very accurate since the bloom is a pretty shade of coral pink that fades to a paler version over time.  I’ve scattered seeds in the inner circle of the Arbor Garden in early May and I’m hoping it will reseed itself.  Here’s some info:

  • Grows 18-24″ tall
  • Prefers full-part sun
  • Attracts bees & butterflies
  • Propogate by seed or cuttings
  • Hardy in zones 8a-11

    That is an interesting color of salvia. For years I thought the only salvia color to be Red. Ha, silly me discovering many colors. I added the Black and Blue to my gardens this fall. I hope they over winter well and give me a show next year.

    • There are so may beautiful colors and varieties of Salvia out there and they all seem to do well here. My B&B have been overwintering for 3 years now, so you should be fine. :)

  2. I like Salvias but the (tender) perennials always flower in September/October and even November over here – just as the weather starts turning cold. Very frustrating. Yours is a lovely shade of pink.
