Salvia lights up the garden with its beautiful spires of violet-blue and amethyst-rose flowers throughout the warm summer months.
This perennial forms a neat, compact mound of elongated, oval-shaped, green foliage. Numerous branched spikes of tubular, lipped flowers emerge in late spring, continuing through summer if plants are kept deadheaded. Flowers from the second year after sown.
Plant this lovely salvia in full sun or partial sunny location and well-drained, reasonably fertile soil which receives regular moisture. Remove faded flowers regularly to encourage reblooming and to maintain a neat appearance.
Good for beds, borders, cottage gardens, cutting gardens.
Its softly colored blossoms are appealing to bees, butterflies and humans alike.
