These large, robust plants arrived in great shape and garden ready! I appreciate the larger size pots- not root-bound like from other nursery growers. This company is such a great resource for plants AND plant knowledge/ background. I'm glad I found them!
A must in the garden and my favorite salvia. A repeat bloomer if spikes are cut down after first bloom. Never weedy looking with tall upright spikes & deep purple flowers. Plant will double or triple in size the following year. Easy to grow , performs well in the sun and heat.
