'Lyrical Blues' (Meadow Sage)

Salvia nemerosa

Spikes of violet-blue flowers on striking purple-black stems rise above the contrasting gray-green leaves. Especially effective when massed, but also nice for mixed borders and containers. A great fresh or dried cut flower. Herbaceous perennial.

This heat-tolerant beauty mounds nicely and covers itself in beautiful indigo flowers throughout its long blooming season. Use it as a fragrant addition to containers, or plant it in masses along sunny borders, and you'll enjoy plenty of visits from butterflies and hummingbirds. Lyrical Blues will rebloom easily, especially with deadheading spent blooms. Deer tend to avoid.
