Snow Hill Salvia

Availability: Out of stock

Spires of white blooms, the Snow Hill Salvia (Salvia x sylvestris 'Schneehugel') has glowing purple stems loaded with masses of clear white flowers that bloom from June to October! Snow Hill is a magnet for butterflies, Hummingbirds, and other beneficial pollinators!

The hybrid Salvia Snow Hill is a real show stopper with its lovely white flowers that won't brown or fade in the sun. These repeat blooms come in waves until frost, feeding your bees and butterflies, or filling vases in dreamy white slender blooms full of tiny florets. The strong square stems and aromatic green leaves are the perfect backdrop to these spires.

Sometimes known as Schneehugel Salvia, these are easy to grow and love heat, sun, and display wonderful cold tolerance, and on top of that, this plant is also deer-resistant! Thriving throughout USDA planting zones 3 to 8, these perennials grow up to 2 feet in height when in bloom, and spread into tidy mounds 15 inches wide.

Planting and Application:

Plant this easy-to-grow Salvia in your garden or containers where it can show off. The bright flowers will draw everyone in for a closer look! If you want a nice contrast of color and form in your garden, combine Snow Hill in a Moon Garden with other white flowering perennials and shrubs, and white and green variegated foliage plants! They add a lightness to the Cottage garden and are a must-have for the Pollinator Border!

Mix this pure white bloom with other sun garden perennials like Sedum, Veronica, and of course, other Saliva! This mixture will make an attractive accent area in that special place in your yard all summer long. The tidy mounds of greenery look great as the front of the garden border edging, facer plants along the fronts of dark evergreen hedges, or as a ring of white fringe around trees and sculptures.

Snow Hills is hardy for container gardening and provides excellent flower arrangements! That way you can easily keep the lovely white spires close by, both indoors and out! Group these blooming perennials together in large planters or mix them among other plants in your decorative containers or terra cotta pottery.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Give your Perennial Salvia the ability to grow hardy and healthy by planting in full sun in a moist, well-drained area with regular moisture until they are established. After, Salvia are low-water usage plants and just need supplemental moisture during extended heat and drought. A 3-4 inch deep layer of mulch around the roots keeps soil moisture more consistent and insulates the roots. Salvia are woody herbaceous perennials that look best if cut back in the early spring. Keep those bold blooms popping until fall with regular deadheading.
