Salvia Garden

Members of the sage family, perennial garden salvias are clump-forming, multi-branched plants available in a wide variety of sizes and bloom color, all of which have scented foliage that disappears over the winter and reliably reappears in the spring.

Easy to grow and tolerant of a wide variety of conditions, salvia’s attractive tubular blooms form on spikes that rise above the plants’ foliage for several weeks in early summer. Blooms are attractive to butterflies, bees and other pollinators.

Salvia cultivars growing in this garden include Salvia x sylvestris “Blauhugel’ BLUE HILL, a wood sage; Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’ and Salvia x sylvestris ‘Sweet 16’.

Other plants in the garden include White Swan coneflower, Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan', Ruffled Ruby daylily, Hemerocallis x 'Ruffled Ruby' and false indigo, Baptisia australis.
