- Grey-Green Aromatic Foliage
- Attracts Hummingbirds and Butterflies
- Deer Resistant
The Salvia ‘Caradonna’, Salvia nemorosa, has glowing purple stems loaded with violet-purple flowers that bloom from June to October. With its gray-green aromatic foliage, it makes an attractive accent all summer long. Naturally forming an excellent, compact form, it remains low maintenance and tidy.
Salvia ‘Caradonna’ was awarded the Outstanding New Perennial in 2000 by the International Hardy Plant Union.
‘Caradonna’ should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first bloom. ‘Caradonna’ is a magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant.
It is hardy for container gardening and provides excellent cut flowers. ‘Caradonna’ blooms look wonderful next to Sedum ‘Matrona’, Achillea ‘Coronation Gold’ and Saliva ‘Snow Hill’.
