Salvia pratensis ‘Twilight Serenade’

Ballet Meadow Sage

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.468.330

Meadow Sage is useful for its rich display of spikes in the early summer border. This selection is medium in size, forming a tight rosette of medium green wrinkly leaves with flowers of deep violet-blue, throughout the summer season. Remove faded blooms to encourage repeat flowering. Excellent for cutting. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. Tolerates heat and humidity but appreciates a soil that does not dry out. In mild winter regions this may stay evergreen but should be trimmed back hard in early spring. Plants may be easily divided in early spring or fall. Part of the Ballet™ Series, a 2008 introduction from Jelitto Seeds of Germany.
