Salvia microphylla 'Wild Watermelon'


Wild Watermelon Salvia Flowers

Whether this plant was named for the vibrant watermelon pink color of the flower or the fruity fragrance of the leaves, Wild Watermelon Salvia is sure to enhance any garden. Its flowers can be used as an edible garnish, if you can bring yourself to deprive the hummingbirds.

The vibrant greens and pinks provide just the right contrast to the grays and light purples of lavenders like Provence Lavender.  This a lovely early spring blooming combination.  However, when the Provence Lavender is finished flowering the Wild Watermelon Salvia will just keep on blooming.

Wild Watermelon can get up to four feet tall and four feet wide. It can be pruned anytime it gets out of shape. We normally prune to about a foot all around in mid- summer and then again in mid-fall.
