Rose Purple Spikes on Compact Plant

The Salvia ‘Caradonna’, Salvia nemorosa, has glowing purple stems loaded with violet-purple flowers that bloom from June to October. With its gray-green aromatic foliage, it makes an attractive accent all summer long.

Salvia ‘Caradonna’ was awarded the Outstanding New Perennial in 2000 by the International Hardy Plant Union. It has a plant height of 30” and a spread of 12-18” and stays in excellent compact form.

‘Caradonna’ should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first bloom. ‘Caradonna’ is a magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant.

It is hardy for container gardening and provides excellent cut flowers. Blooms look wonderful next to Sedum ‘Matrona’, Achillea 'Coronation Gold' and Saliva ‘Snow Hill’.

Container plant Review by Janny
I really like the flower and foliage of the Caradonna salvia. My container garden would not be nearly as attractive without them.
. Review by James L
This plant is my favorite in my gardens. Its strong upright stems and deep bluish purple blossoms are a true standout amongst all my perennials. Its stems are a dark purple, almost black, and when the blossoms begin to fade it does not look as unkempt as other salvias do. To keep the blooms coming deadheading is a must, but the initial blossoms last well into the summer. It does command attention in the garden bed and works well with many perennials and annuals. I personally like to plant bright yellow and bright pink flowers with it. The contrast is a real WOW! I have 4 Caradonnas in my garden beds, one is planted next to my French Lace weigela and it is very stunning when both bush and plant are in full bloom! A must for all gardens. You will not be disappointed!
