This selection has a compact habit which makes it perfect for edging, containers, or other small spaces. The foliage spread the first year is quite impressive for a dwarf plant. Dark violet-purple flowers are produced nearly all summer long, particularly if plants are deadheaded. The leaves are aromatic when crushed.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Salvia is easy to grow in almost any climate. Though it is drought tolerant, it will bloom better with regular watering. Deadheading encourages a longer bloom time. If plants get leggy during the season, cut them all the way back to the newly developed foliage. If cut back, plants may rebloom in fall but often the flowers are fewer and smaller
