Salvia nemorosa 'Bumbleberry' PP31602 (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Perennial Salvia, Garden Sage
If you've ever had the opportunity to walk in a garden of Salvia in late spring, you know that bumblebees and other pollinators swarm to this perennial in droves. 'Bumbleberry' produces dark fuchsia pink flowers on dark wine purple calyxes on a petite habit of attractive deep green foliage. The deep, intense color makes other pink Salvias pale in comparison. This cute sized package is perfect for the front of the border or grown in a quart pot.
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.

My reviews of the bare-root plants are all the same: I've received several shipments, and all of them have been nothing but enormous, healthy rootstocks which seem to perform far superior to most 1-gallon plants one can find in local nurseries, at usually much lower cost.
