Salvia nemorosa ‘Tidal Pool’

Perennial Sage

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.471.030

The Perennial Sages are invaluable perennials for their rich display in the border. Plants form a bushy clump of grey-green leaves, with upright flower spikes that are attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. This selection is reported to have a more refined habit, better branching and more flowers than some other varieties. It features large, bicolour flower spikes with violet-blue hoods and lighter insides. Remove faded flowers to encourage repeat blooming, or simply cut back hard after flowering is finished. Plants are reasonably drought tolerant, once established. Excellent for cutting. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring, every 3 to 4 years. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
