Great in those sun-baked sites with tricky soil, Rock gardens and as a facer plant in front of your foundation plantings, or skirting around larger shrubs and trees to hide their bare legs, all easily showcase this fantastic plant!

Both a fragrant fresh cut and wonderful dried flower, be sure to plant a few extras for your floral designs, interior decor, and a few extra so you can leave some for the waves of butterflies! A valuable host plant for the Sage Sphinx Moth and a vital nectar resource for all beneficial pollinators and bees!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Growing in almost any climate, Pink Profusion is hardy in USDA growing zones 3-8! These herbaceous perennials are versatile and adaptable to a wide range of conditions.

Loving the full sun, Perennial Salvia thrives in the heat, also able to handle partial sun and some afternoon shade, especially in the hotter climates.

Thriving in all types of soil, Salvia does best in average garden soil that is well-drained and enriched with organic matter. Mulch your plants, especially when planted in harsh conditions to better retain soil moisture and insulate the roots from heat and cold.

Retain average, consistent soil moisture for best results, but these tough plants are drought-tolerant once established. New plants should receive regular watering to ensure they’ve established. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.

So easy to grow and very low maintenance! Deadhead or cut back after flowering to promote reblooming, keeping the blooms returning longer! Cut the entire plant back after it has died back in late autumn or early winter. You can leave the dried floral spikes up for winter interest.

For fantastic color, herbal fragrance and handsome form all growing season, you be hard-pressed to find a better addition to your sun gardens this year with the fantastic native Pink Profusion Salvia! Order yours at NatureHills.com today!
