Dormancy: Evergreen Height: 24″ tall Culture: Sun Origin: Europe (aka: Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’) Of the Salvia x sylvestris cultivars we have seen and trialed, Salvia ‘Caradonna’ is one of the finest and most distinctive. From Zillmer Nursery in Germany, Salvia ‘Caradonna’ was discovered as a seedling of Salvia ‘Wesuve’ and in 2000 was awarded the Outstanding New Perennial award by the International Hardy Plant Union. The 12″ tall x 18″ wide clump is composed of dark purple stems clothed with felty green leaves. In midsummer the clumps are topped with dramatic, upright, 2′ tall spikes of vivid blue-violet (RHS 89A)…a simply stunning hummingbird favorite!
