‘Pink Dawn’ produces a cloud of sizable, cotton candy pink blossoms which pop open from fuchsia buds held on purplish stems from late spring into early summer. Compared to other pink Salvias, it is a bit longer blooming due to its well-branched flower stems.
Salvia is a staple item for every sunny garden. It asks little more than sunshine and a little drink every once in a while in return for producing a bountiful mass of colorful flower spires from late spring into early summer. It forms an upright clump of aromatic, rugose green foliage that looks nice all season long and is not enjoyed by rabbits or deer.
