This Salvia nemorosa hybrid will impress you with the number of times it reblooms! Sheer back the spent flowers and enjoy again throughout the summer. Violet blue flowers are held on rosy purple calyxes on a perfectly rounded, dense and beautiful habit. This shorter stature Salvia will tuck in nicely to all sorts of places in your perennial garden, planted en mass makes a perfect edger. An easy to grow perennial that’s mostly unbothered by deer and rabbits.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers moist, gravelly or sandy soils with good drainage, but tolerates drought. Plants may repeat bloom throughout the summer, but need regular moisture to encourage this. Remove spent flower spikes to help extend the bloom period. Plants may become somewhat floppy and open up as the summer progresses, particularly in humid climates. If plants flop or otherwise depreciate in summer to the point where they look unsightly, consider cutting them back to the basal foliage. In any event, cut plants back after flowering has concluded.
