We’ve trialed many, many Salvias over the years with mixed results, but there’s no doubt that the newest cultivars ‘Sensation Deep Rose Improved’ and ‘Sensation Sky Blue’ are some of the best we’ve seen.

Compared to ‘Sensation Rose’, the new ‘Sensation Deep Rose Improved’ has brighter pink flowers and an improved uniform habit.  This is a mid-sized selection that forms a robust but compact clump of rugose, green foliage.

It is extremely floriferous, with bright pink flowers completely covering the foliage in early summer into midsummer.  Deep purple calyces and stems accent the pink flowers nicely.
