Salvia nemorosa 'Violet Riot' PP26273 CPBR5337 (25) Bare Root Plants
COLOR SPIRES® Collection
Common Name: Perennial Salvia, Garden Sage
‘Violet Riot’ produces a riot of vivid violet blue flowers with deep purple calyxes from late spring into early summer. Compared to the industry standard ‘May Night’, it has a much denser habit, a more concentrated show of color, and a neater habit in containers, increasing its impulse appeal at retail.
Salvia is a staple item for every sunny garden. It asks little more than sunshine and a little drink every once in a while in return for producing a bountiful mass of colorful flower spires from late spring into early summer. It forms a uniform, rounded clump of aromatic, rugose green foliage that looks nice all season long and is not enjoyed by rabbits or deer.
Salvia is easy to grow in almost any climate. Though it is drought tolerant, it will bloom better with regular watering. Deadheading encourages a longer bloom time. If plants get leggy during the season, cut them all the way back to the newly developed foliage. If cut back, plants may rebloom in fall but often the flowers are fewer and smaller.

The plants came a day late due to a shipping delay no fault of Bloomindesigns. So they were pretty dry when they got here. I gave them a quick 10 minute soak popped them in some pots and one week later all 25 (+1) bonus have leafed out nicely. Thank you Blooming designs next year's display will be gorgeous!
