A Park Seed Exclusive!
So big, bright, and bold it could only be a Whopper, this annual Salvia takes the world by storm from the moment you sow the seed. In just 7 weeks you have a huge, fully-blooming plant that’s prepared to keep the flowers coming all summer! And it’s happy in just about any light from full sun to complete shade. It is with great pride that I introduce you to newest Whopper, Salvia Lighthouse!
The blooms are fiery scarlet, and arise very densely on long, sturdy 8- to 10-inch spikes that shine like beacons above the foliage. Expect the first just 7 weeks from sowing, to be followed by countless others over a long, long summer season. Not only are these blooms far larger than other Salvias’, but they arise in big clumps for a very full, colorful look.
If you’re used to dainty, petite little red Salvias, Whopper Lighthouse is out to shock you. The plant reaches up to 30 inches tall and 10 to 12 inches wide, with large, handsome foliage that complements the blooms and keeps the garden green even when out of bloom. An absolutely tireless bloomer, it’s just as heat- and drought-tolerant as other Salvias. Easy to grow and requiring little maintenance to keep looking its best, Whopper Lighthouse is a busy gardener’s dream plant!
Place this plant is full sun, partial shade, or even complete shade — the butterflies and hummingbirds will find it regardless, adding to its color display. Even a small planting is an eye-catching sight, and a large landscaping design of Whopper Lighthouse is a fabulous show of rich red over many weeks — months! — in the hottest part of the year.
A good garden neighbor to everything from Delphinium and Phlox in the sun and Begonia and Plectranthus in the shade, Whopper Lighthouse is ideal for beds, borders, and large containers. Enjoy this super-quick, over-the-top beautiful Salvia in all your choicest garden spots! Pkt is 50 seeds.
