A notable Salvia with strongly vertical spires of luminous florets on dark stems. Highly appealing to gardeners and pollinators alike.
If you cut Salvia ‘Caradonna’ back hard around December, then water and fertilise, you will get strong regrowth and it can flower into autumn. That is amazing value. It is no wonder it holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for excellence.
Salvias are generous, low maintenance plants that become dry tolerant as they establish.
Salvias are one of the best garden plants around. They grow in a wide range of conditions and flower and flower and flower. Planting a variety of Salvias will ensure months of colour for your garden and your vases. There is a huge assortment to choose in a range of shapes and sizes.

Plant into moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Sandy and gravelly soils are very suitable. Salvia ‘Caradonna’ is dry tolerant once established. A sunny position is perfect for this plant. Cut back late winter/early spring before the new foliage emerges.
