Salvia nemorosa 'Ostfriesland'
Balkan Clary - 2 litres
Salvia nemorosa East Friesland ('Ostfriesland') is a tried and tested hardy perennial with aromatic foliage and spikes of violet-blue flowers with pinkish-purple bracts on purple stems from early to late summer. It tones in equally well with hot or pastel schemes, with an upright habit which contrasts with bushy sedums and the flat flowers of achilleas. Loved by bees and butterflies. Perfect for the front of a sunny border. Height and spread 45cm by 30cm.
Hardy and easily grown in ordinary, well-drained garden soil, at the front of a sunny border, sheltered from cold, drying winds. Regular deadheading prolongs flowering.
