The Perennial Sages are invaluable for their rich display of spiky flowers in the early summer border. This compact selection features flowers of a deep violet-blue shade, even flowering well in its first year from seed. Deadhead just below the spend heads to encourage repeat flowering. Excellent for cutting. Drought tolerant once established. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Easily divided in spring, every 3 to 4 years. Selected by S&G Flowers. Winner of a European Fleuroselect Gold Medal (2007).
