Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna'
A superb compact cultivar of this clump forming herbaceous Salvia. Glowing purple-black stems loaded with violet-blue flowers from June to October which look great against the grey-green, aromatic foliage.
Looks excellent amongst silver foliaged plants for an attractive accent in a sunny summer border.
Climate/Position: Thrives in a sunny spot and will become drought tolerant once established.
Height/Spread: 75cm x 45cm
Soil Requirements: Light, moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist but well- drained soil
Pruning: To prolong flowering remove the flower spikes as soon they start to fade. Tidy plants by cutting back to ground level in autumn or spring.
The name nemorosa means growing in groves or woods.
