Salvia x jamensis 'Violette De Loire'
Supplied in a 9cm pot
Perennial sages are always fantastic in ornamental borders, mainly thanks to their summer-long displays of spiky, nectar-rich flowers and heady aromatic leaves.
Salvia x jamensis 'Violette de Loire' is a small shrubby perennial with fresh green, aromatic foliage. From May until the first frosts it is covered with gorgeous indigo flowers flushed with violet. 'Violette de Loire' can be planted in containers on a patio or balcony. Alternatively, plant next to benches and paths where you can brush past the aromatic foliage and enjoy its pretty blooms. The flowers are extremely attractive bees and other pollinators.
For best results grow Salvia x jamensis 'Violette de Loire' in well-drained soil in full sun. Plants may need some protection in extreme winters.
