May Night Salvia

Sweetly-Scented Foliage

Deep purple flower spikes soar 6-8 in. above blue-gray foliage in summer and last for weeks. Very low maintenance — growing to 18 in. tall in full sun. Winner of the Perennial Plant of the Year award in 1997. Zones 4-8.
This plant attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
I'm gardening elsewhere.
