Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’

Common Name

Meadow Sage

Plant Description

Striking deep-purple, almost black stems enhance the deep indigo-purple flower spikes. 'Caradonna' continues to out-bloom every other Salvia and is an excellent choice for the mixed border. Attracts birds, bees, and butterflies. Responds well to shearing after blooming to prompt fresh foliage and rebloom.
