Desired for its long blooming season, Salvia Love and Wishes is a tall, elegant perennial featuring showy spikes of ravishing reddish-purple flowers, soaring above a bushy clump of mid to deep green aromatic foliage. The flowers rise along dark stems and are attractive to butterflies as well as being excellent for cutting due to their luscious fragrance.
These reasonably drought tolerant plants prefer a sunny spot and are invaluable for their richly coloured display in the border. You could use them for a colourful ground cover option. They have the additional bonus of being deer resistant.
