Snow Hill Salvia Plants are prolific bloomers, bearing masses of lacy looking flower spikes atop medium-dark, grayish-green foliage. A little more compact than many Meadow Sage, with flower panicles that are not quite as full, the frilly white flowers seem to be purely icing on top of this fragrant specimen. Wood sage prefers full sun locations with moist, well-drained soil, but will tolerate dry, poor ones. Once it is established it is very drought tolerant. Salvia is a magnet for butterflies, hummingbirds and bees, while deer and rabbits tend to skip over it while browsing.
Common Names: snow hill sage, wood sage, ornamental meadow sage, perennial woodland sage, salvia schneehugel
Salvia Companion Plants: Artemisia, Euphorbia, Hemerocallis, Papaver, Scabiosa
Snow Hill Salvia Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Trimming back the plant after the initial flowering is over will bring out a second flush that will last into the fall. Plants can be cut back to the ground after the first hard frost. Spring is a good time to apply fertilizer for the season.
