While most gardeners are probably more familiar with annual Salvia, growers and experienced gardeners also enjoy the merits of perennial Salvia (or Perennial Sage). Robust, clumping 22-24” plants produce long slender spikes of flowers from mid-late summer. The most common flower color is blue or purple, but there are also varieties that have flowers in the rose-pink color spectrum.
