Salvia n. 'Perfect Profusion' PP31434 (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Perennial Salvia
This Salvia nemorosa hybrid reblooms multiple times throughout the summer if the spent flower stems are cut back-one of the very best for consistent rebloom. Soft icy blue flowers cover the perfectly rounded plant. The sheer density of flower stems will certainly catch your eye as you walk past! Compared to 'Crystal Blue', this has thinner flowers and a rounder habit. An easy to grow perennial that's mostly unbothered by deer and rabbits. This is the perfect flower to kick off your summer garden!
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.
