Easy-Growing, Bright-Blooming Perennial
Looking for an eye-catching, plant-anywhere perennial? The May Night Salvia is the perfect choice.
With tall, spiky indigo-blue flowers and mounds of soft, green foliage, the May Night Salvia (also known as May Night Sage or Meadow Sage) adds bright color to mixed borders, flower beds, patio containers and more. It's well-suited to cottage landscapes, rock gardens or cut flower beds.
It's one of the easiest perennials to grow and maintain. Whether you're an expert gardener or a first-time grower, you'll get months of vibrant, re-blooming flowers. This low-maintenance show-stopper is also drought tolerant once established, and resistant to deer and rabbits.
A sweet fragrance means it attracts pollinators like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds - and it makes for lush bouquets of cut flowers in your home, or to give to friends.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Find a spot with well-drained soil and full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day). The May Night Salvia thrives in growing zones where spring and summer nights remain cool.
Plant your May Night Salvia in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Water immediately to establish roots, and add a 3-inch layer of mulch to prevent weeds.
If you're planting in a container, select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, and use organic soil. Place your May Night Salvia, water to settle its roots, and find a sunny spot on your porch or patio.
2. Watering: May Night Salvia plants are drought-tolerant once established, but you'll want to water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to support a healthy root system. Once established, water weekly or when soil is dry two inches down.
If your May Night Salvia is in a container, water more frequently, until you see water flowing from the drainage holes at the bottom.
3. Pruning and care: Prune annually after flowering, and remove spent flowers to encourage blooming. Fertilize before new growth in spring.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

I have had my plant for years, and even when I have neglected it, it has still been beautiful. Love it.
Plant came healthy and it is looking good so far.
I was worried on their arrival that they might not survive (evidently had a rough ride in shipping) but they appear to be doing better now. Lively purple stalks have blended well in a new pet memorial garden we have added to our back yard.
