|Design Ideas||A diminutive salvia that's perfect for adding reliable color to tight city gardens. Fleshes out small openings in pavement; thrives in well drained raised planters. Exceptional for tidiness in the front of the sunny perennial border. Makes a perfect groundcovering plant in front of shrubs that have lost their skirts. Size is perfect for rock and alpine gardens. Among the best new salvias for pots and container gardening. A roof garden winner!|
|Companion Plants||Maiden Grass (Miscanthus); Milkweed (Asclepias); Coneflower (Echinacea); Blanket Flower (Gaillardia); Blue Fescue (Festuca)|
|Care||Thrives in average, well-drained soils; tolerates clay soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with an all-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Remove spent flower heads to encourage continued bloom.|
|Lore||Wild savlia has been used medicinally in lieu of garden sage for European folk medicine.|
