Select a location with part shade to full sun. Salvia is not particular about soil as long as it is well-drained. Plant in spring after danger of frost. For transplants, start indoors about six weeks before last frost date. Keep area weeded and watered until plants become established, after which they are quite drought tolerant.

Keep individual flower spikes cut or shear back entire plant to encourage additional flowers.
