From experience we have learned to grow this in full sun with sharp drainage. In fact we now grow it in a no-water border. The reason for this is because of its double-flowers which seem to add extra weight to the plant especially if it is grown with too much fertility and water. In those cases, the flower stems of Salvia n. `Pusztaflamme' are floppy and the flowers often end up on the ground. When grown in the no-water border, this sage is amazing. The red purple flowers which remind us of amaranth flowers are both attractive and unusual. They suit the rugged, wrinkled look of the lance-shaped gray green leaves.
