May Night Salvia

Sweetly-Scented Foliage

  • Award-winning, low-maintenance plant
  • Grows 18 in. tall
  • Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies
  • Long-lasting cut flower
  • Deer-resistant perennial
Deep purple flower spikes soar 6-8 in. above the blue-gray foliage in the summer and last for weeks. The flower spikes attract butterflies and hummingbirds—and are long-lasting as cut flowers. May Night Salvia, commonly called wood sage, is a very low-maintenance, drought-tolerant perennial. This 1997 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year has aromatic foliage and is stunning when planted in drifts or masses. It's also good for planting in perennial borders and butterfly gardens. Deer tend to avoid. For best results, plant in full sun. Zones 4-8.
