Perennial Salvia, or Meadow Sage, is reliable and compact, useful in the border, rock garden, and for edging and natural plantings. Salvias are a member of the mint family and share the characteristic of square stems. It features simple, oval or lance-shaped leaves with toothed margins and whorls of flowers produced on spikes.

It is easily grown in dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun, and tolerates drought. Plants may repeat bloom throughout the summer, but need regular moisture. Remove spent flower spikes to help extend the bloom period. If plants flop or otherwise depreciate in summer to the point where they look unsightly, consider cutting them back to the basal foliage.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
