Big, mounding foliage topped continuously with a generous number of black spires bursting with purple blooms from spring to autumn.
The royal purple florets open from dark, almost black calyxes above the foliage, forming a deep haze over the plant. The leaves are lovely and thick, to stand up to the heat. An excellent bedding or large container plant that is quick to establish with a long bloom period.
Salvia ‘Purple and Bloom’ is a great choice for gardens or containers. These rugged plants require little and do so much. Plant into moderately fertile, to humus rich, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position and water to establish, they become dry tolerant once they have settled in.
The aromatic foliage and abundant flowers attract bees, butterflies and birds.
