Why the Caradonna Meadow Sage?

Exquisite! Caradonna Salvia carries itself with style and grace. Bringing an important vertical element to the landscape, it offers svelte upright flower spikes lined with deep indigo-blue blossoms. Purple-black stems add definition to the plant in and out of bloom. But when is it not in bloom? Caradonna flowers for an incredibly long time—it begins in late spring and often continues the entire growing season! This splendid Spirit looks sharp in formal planting schemes, but it is equally at home in more naturalistic gardens and meadows. Adaptable, elegant, and ever-blooming. We love it.

This species of Salvia, or Meadow Sage, is a wildflower that ranges from eastern Europe to western Siberia; it favors cool-summer climates. Meadow Sage grows most abundantly in sunny, dry meadows and forest edges in its homelands. Deer and other browsers avoid it because of the pungent smell of its leaves when crushed; it’s a member of the fragrant Mint family and is long-lived. Caradonna Salvia originated at Zillmer Nursery in Germany as a seedling of a pretty variety known as ‘Wesuve’. In 2000, it was named an Outstanding New Perennial by the International Hardy Plant Union.

How To Plant

Give Caradonna Salvia a position in all-day sun for maximum flower power. The soil should be free-draining and lean. Rich soil encourages floppy growth. Water regularly during establishment; less moisture will be needed in succeeding years. Deadhead (prune out spent flower spikes) to keep plants looking thrifty and to encourage new flower buds to form. Plants will often bloom until frost. Cut back old stems and foliage before new growth resumes in spring. Caradonna Salvia rarely needs dividing and may be left in place for many years.

How To Water

Water as soon as they arrive! Meadow Sage plants need to be watered regularly to maintain evenly moist soil for proper establishment in the landscape.
