The Perennial Sages are invaluable perennials for their rich display in the border. Plants form a bushy clump of grey-green leaves, with upright spikes appearing in early summer, attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. This selection features deep, violet-blue flowers over a long season. Enjoy repeat blooming several times during the growing season by removing spent flowers. Nice compact habit. 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.
