'Melen' has been chosen: 
- for its extremely even, compact and well-branched shape.
- and for its early and abundant flowering from May to the first frosts.   
The colours of the flowers bring orginality to the Salvia range: the corolla is pale yellow and the edge of the top lip orange in contrast with the dark brown calyx. 
The elongated dark green leaves are semi-evergreen and naturally aromatic.
An easy plant for the garden, in well draining soil, also tolerates being planted in a pot. The Salvia range on sale by SAPHO offer a beautiful palette of colours.
