  2. Compact Growth Habit:

    • With a height of 18 to 24 inches and a spread of 24 to 36 inches, 'Hot Lips' Salvia exhibits a compact and mounding growth habit. Its dense foliage forms a neat clump, making it suitable for small gardens, borders, and container plantings.
  3. Long Bloom Period:

    • Hot Lips Salvia blooms continuously from spring to frost, providing months of color and beauty in the garden. Deadheading spent flowers can encourage repeat flowering and prolong the blooming season, ensuring a vibrant display throughout the growing season.
  4. Drought Tolerance:

    • SALVIA micr. 'Hot Lips' is well-adapted to hot, dry conditions and thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Once established, it requires minimal supplemental watering and is ideal for water-wise landscapes and low-maintenance gardens.

Maintenance Tips:

Caring for SALVIA micr. 'Hot Lips' is relatively simple and requires minimal maintenance:

  1. Sunlight and Soil:

  2. Watering:

    • Water newly planted 'Hot Lips' Salvia regularly to establish a strong root system. Once established, water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Water deeply but infrequently to encourage deep root growth.
  3. Pruning:

    • Prune 'Hot Lips' Salvia lightly after the first flush of blooms to promote bushier growth and maintain its compact shape. Remove any dead or leggy stems to encourage new growth and flowering.
  4. Fertilization:

    • Hot Lips Salvia generally does not require heavy fertilization. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to provide essential nutrients for healthy growth and flowering.
  5. Winter Care:

    • In colder climates, protect 'Hot Lips' Salvia from harsh winter winds and frost by covering it with a layer of mulch. Consider bringing container-grown specimens indoors or into a sheltered area during the coldest months.
