Purple Rain Salvia

A Garden Go-To
Enjoy pretty, tiny purple blooms in bunches, lining the arching reddish stems throughout summer. Be sure to grab a few of stems of perfumed blooms for your cut-flower arrangements. They rise high over lavish, fuzzy, green foliage. Brings in the butterflies and hummingbirds, and hungry rabbits tend to avoid it. This salvia--also called whorled sage--is a great go-to for most any garden. It's very reliable and easy to care for. Purple Rain fits right into a cottage or prairie garden, and stays compact enough for city and courtyard gardens. It even thrives in costal gardens! Great soil tolerance, including rocky and dry soils. Salvia verticillata 'Purple Rain'
