Salvia nemorosa ‘Blue by You’

The Perennial Sages are invaluable perennials for their rich display in the border.

Plants are reasonably drought tolerant, once established. Excellent for cutting. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring, every 3 to 4 years. Hybrid between S. nemorosa and S. pratensis offering excellent winter hardiness and heat tolerance. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
