The Salvia ‘Plumosa’, Salvia nemorosa, has glowing purple stems loaded with deep, double purple flowers that bloom from June to October. With its gray-green basal leaves and aromatic foliage, it makes an attractive accent all summer long.
It has a plant height of 18” and a spread of 18-24” and stays in excellent compact form. Salvia ‘Plumosa’ should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first flowering is done.
‘Plumosa’ is a magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant. Plant in containers, borders, and 'Plumosa' looks stunning when combined with Sedum ‘Matrona’, Achillea 'Coronation Gold' and Saliva ‘Snow Hill’. It is an excellent choice for gardeners who like re-seeding perennials that naturalize into their garden.
Its spectacular glowing purple flowers make ‘Plumosa' worth growing. You will not just want one gorgeous purple plant, instead, plant in groups of three or five!
If you place the plants so they form a triangle or a sweep, the ‘Plumosa’ plants will grow together to make one clump of an amazing purple color. This beautiful purple cluster will create a stunning, colorful spot that will be the envy of the neighborhood!
