This variety of salvia can be grown in full to part sun conditions. This tall annual will grow to a height between 24 and 36 inches with a 24 to 30-inch spread with an upright habit.
Salvia Rockin Fuchsia has won numerous horticultural awards including top performer and best pollinator-friendly annual. This plant makes a great addition to a border or pollinator garden. It can be used in the thriller role in a container garden. The pretty flowers will attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. This annual is heat and drought tolerant plus it’s deer resistant too.
Rockin' Fuchsia Salvia Care
This is a low maintenance sterile variety of salvia. Trim it back occasionally if you want it to be fuller and have more flowers. Water and add a balanced slow-release fertilizer regularly for maximum flowering. Once established, it can tolerate low levels of water and nutrition. The lower leaves will drop off in severe drought conditions. You can grow this plant as an annual or indoors with enough sunlight and the right conditions.
This salvia won’t set seeds, so it will continue to bloom all season long without deadheading. If you forget to water it or it doesn’t rain when you’re away, trim back the top third and resume regular watering. The foliage will fill back in.
Rockin' Fuchsia Salvia Spacing
In a garden bed, space plants 18 - 24 inches apart, center on center. They can be planted a minimum of 6 inches apart in a container to achieve a fuller look. They’ll look great combined with taller plants that produce similar or contrasting color flowers.
