Salvia nemorosa ‘Caramia’


Perennial Sage

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.468.740


The Perennial Sages are invaluable perennials for their rich display in the border. Plants form a bushy clump of grey-green leaves, with upright spikes appearing in early summer, attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. This selection features dark purple flower spikes on dark stems and is compact. Remove faded flowers to encourage repeat blooming, or simply cut back hard after flowering is finished. Plants are reasonably drought tolerant, once established. Excellent for cutting. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring, every 3 to 4 years.
