The autumn sage is a compact shrub with small aromatic leaves. Numerous hybrids abound with a range of different coloured flowers that lend colour to the garden for months on end from spring to autumn. This new hybrid called ‘Radio Red’ has bright scarlet flowers on neat, tidy bushes that really stand out in the garden. They thrive in full sun, are drought tolerant and withstand extreme winter cold. Useful plants for adding a splash of colour and substance to frosty gardens around KZN.
