Salvia nemorosa Caradonna

Balkan Clary Caradonna

A really good, shorter ornamental sage, Salvia nemorosa Caradonna is a herbaceous perennial with a very upright, clump-forming habit. The narrow, rough, grey-green leaves are pleasantly aromatic. From June to September, spires of violet flowers with pinkish-purple bracts are borne on slender, dark purple stems; the flowers are a magnet for honey-bees. Drought-tolerant once established. Cut back after the first flowering to promote further flowers. Balkan clary Caradonna holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
