Salvia nemorosa 'Caramia'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • Dark purple flowers in spring & summer
  • More compact form is better for small spaces & combo pots
  • Feeds our local bees & butterflies

This hybrid takes after 'Caradonna', but with a more compact form and with blue-purple flowers against striking dark stems. Its smaller size and well-branched habit will make it a front-of-garden favorite.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, preferably, or with partial shade in southern locations. Provide moist, well-drained, moderately fertile soil; amend with compost before planting. Reasonably drought tolerant once established, though blooms best with regular watering. Removing faded flowers helps to encourage repeat blooming; or you can simply cut the whole plant back hard after flowering is complete. In spring, cut back to 3" high & apply a balanced granular fertilizer.
