Salvia

Sage

Thought in ancient times to perpetuate good health, an Arab proverb asks, “How shall a man die with sage in his garden?” Our Salvias are diverse perennials, shrubs or subshrubs. Many of them hail from the Mediterranean, Mexico and South America.

Drought tolerant, reliable once established, and generally pest and disease free, they combine an array of flowers and aromatic foliage in many different sizes, shapes, and hues.

Salvia verticillata ‘Purple Rain’ full sun  new plant

Ornate closely spaced whorls of tiny 2-lipped, warm rosy purple flowers embellish lengthy, lax, upright and arching stems that rise from a fuzzy looking, compact rounded base. A friend to bees, butterflies and other visitors, long-lasting showy blooms linger above broad, textural somewhat triangular medium green leaves. Favoring good drainage and a trimming after the flowers fade, ‘Purple Rain’ abides lean, rocky and dry sites plus imparts a noteworthy presence to rock walls, borders or wilder settings.

Size: 18" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
