A very showy sage with small lavender flowers disposed in tight whorls along the long stems. They contrast nicely with the lime-green calyces that will persist on the stems.
One of my favourite sage, but it needs space to develop well;it can grow up to 1.2 m but if it gets too big it can be sheared back. I even planted a couple of seedlings in a big container mixed with other ‘treats’ for bumblebees and butterflies!
Great for the flower border, wildflower meadows, naturalized areas.
Germination: easy, sow in the spring. If started early it may flower in the first year.
