Salvia pratensis ‘Rose Rhapsody’


Ballet Meadow Sage

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.468.580


Meadow Sage is useful for its rich display of spikes in the early summer border. This selection is medium in size, with flowers of soft pink. Remove faded blooms to encourage repeat flowering. Excellent for cutting. Tolerates heat and humidity but appreciates a soil that does not dry out. Plants may be easily divided in early spring or fall. In mild winter regions this may stay evergreen but should be trimmed back hard in early spring. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Part of the Ballet™ Series, introduced by Jelitto Seeds of Germany.
