April Night Meadow Sage Salvia x sylvestris #2
This new petite salvia blooms a month earlier than the popular 'May Night', providing an extended bloom period from spring right through summer! Blue-violet flower spikes rise from dense, sturdy, upright foliage. Great drought and mildew resistance. Perfect for meadows, garden borders, and mixed patio containers. An herbaceous perennial.
Thrives in average, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates periodic drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Remove spent flowers to encourage continued bloom. Prune annually after flowering.
