The Perennial Sages are invaluable perennials for their rich display of spiky flowers in the early summer border. This midsized Dutch selection is well branched, with flowers of an unusual mauve-purple shade. Deadhead just below the spend heads to encourage repeat flowering. Excellent for cutting. Drought tolerant once established. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Selected by plantsman Piet Oudolf at his nursery in Hummelo, Netherlands.
