Salvia nemorosa ‘Rhapsody in Blue’


Perennial Sage

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.468.460


The Perennial Sages are invaluable for their rich display of spiky flowers in the early summer border. This selection from the Netherlands is medium in height, with flowers of deep violet purple. Remove faded blooms to encourage repeat flowering. Excellent for cutting. Drought tolerant once established. Can be clipped back hard after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. USPP#15148, CPBR#3202: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
