Introducing the Brillantaisia subulugurica, also known as the Giant Sage. This stunning and easy-to-grow plant thrives in a variety of lighting conditions, from full sun to partial shade, making it a versatile addition to any garden or indoor space.


Belonging to the Acanthaceae family, this tender perennial features slightly serrated oval leaves with a pointed shape. Its magnificent flowers, reminiscent of salvia, boast a striking combination of a purple lower lip and an upper part adorned with purple hairs, all set against a backdrop of creamy white petals. Expect these blooming beauties to grace your garden during the summer months.


With regards to care, we recommend growing this plant in a well-draining soil enriched with loam-based compost. While we are still discovering its hardiness, it is advisable to keep it a few degrees above freezing for optimal growth. Suitable for heated conservatories, greenhouses, or indoor spaces, the Giant Sage can be planted as part of a sub-tropical bed-out arrangement, adding a touch of elegance and charm to any surrounding.


Reaching a height of up to 3 feet, this frost-tender Brillantaisia subulugurica requires attention to detail but rewards with luscious blue flowers that will captivate your senses. Shop now to bring this delightful plant into your home or garden and enjoy its vibrant blooms for years to come.
