#ProPlantTips for Care:

Perennial Salvia needs to be planted in full sun for the most blooms, best color, and vigorous growth. Once established are actually quite xeric and drought tolerant! But to keep those blooms pumping, give them a drink during extended drought and throughout the worst of the summer heat, especially in the hotter climates. Apply a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch over the soil surface for moisture retention and insulation. Prune early spring to clean the mound and encourage an even flush of new growth each spring. Deadhead after the first flush of blooms fades to encourage a second, and sometimes even a third in warmer climates!

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate to Low Moisture Once Established
  • Wide Variety of Well-Drained Soils
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Deadhead Often & Prune Down In Early Spring
