(Salvia coccinea)
This premium variety is more compact and earlier blooming than other salvias, with clouds of nectar-rich, orchid-like blossoms in an enchanting shade of salmon-coral with tiny white stamens. Hummingbirds seek out and flock to Coral Nymph plants literally from dawn to dusk, and sprays of these charming flowers are lovely in mixed bouquets. Coral Nymph grows readily in a wide range of conditions and blooms continuously throughout summer. Ideal for big containers or as easy-care, free-flowering border plants.

FOR BEST RESULTS START EARLY INDOORS

Start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost date. Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix and cover very lightly. Keep moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source. When seedlings are large enough to handle, acclimate gradually to outdoor conditions. Transplant 8 inches apart in garden beds once night temperatures are above 50°F (10°C).

For Container Growing: Plant 4 seedlings per 20 inch pot; 3 plants per 16 inch pot; or 1 plant per 8 inch pot.

 

TO GROW OUTDOORS

Sow in a well-worked seed bed or in containers in full sun when all danger of frost is past and weather is warm and settled. Space seeds 4 inches apart, cover very lightly. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 10 to 14 days. Thin to 8 inches apart so seedlings have room to grow and mature.

 

GROWING NOTES

This improved Dutch cultivar is compact, growing in graceful sprays just 2 feet tall. Plants grow quickly and bloom early to flower all summer long. Hummingbirds simply adore Coral Nymph’s nectar rich flowers and visit them constantly. Plants handle a wide range of conditions.
