Perfect for a cottage garden, herbaceous borders or even in containers, the petite Salvia April Night starts flowering early – hence its name – and continues throughout the season.
Vibrant purple-blue spires of flowers rise elegantly above the compact green foliage. Deadhead after flowering or even cut back hard to rejuvenate the spear-shaped, crinkly edged foliage, which is not only visually pleasing, but is also fragrant, making it ideal for cutting.
S. April Night is a relation of the indigenous Meadow Sage and is drought resistant. It is also highly attractive to bees and other pollinators, including the spectacular hummingbird moth.
