Plant Type: Perennials
Thick plume-like panicles are very deep purple and are very unique from other salvias. They retain this wonderful color when harvested and dried. 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
