The Caradonna Sage is a striking perennial plant, forming a 3-foot clump of dense aromatic foliage and long spikes of bloom. The many near-black stems rise up, carrying a multitude of small but vivid blooms colored a dark blue with violet-purple overtones. It blooms from mid-summer into fall, bringing vibrant beauty to your summer garden. Plant it among your shrubs, or with other perennial plants. Grow it in open dry places in the full sun it loves.

  • Dense mound of dark olive-green aromatic leaves
  • 2-foot purple stems support a profusion of violet-blue flowers
  • Blooms from mid-summer into the fall
  • A top choice for zones with hot and humid summers
  • Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds

Grow the Caradonna Sage in full sun, or with just an hour or two of shade each day. It loves sunny, open places and drier soils, growing in all kinds of soil as long as they are well-drained. Even gravels and sands are suitable, and this tough plant thrives in hot and humid summer too. Normally free of pests or diseases, and untouched by rabbits or deer, it takes no more than a once-a-year cutting back in late fall to grow it perfectly. Encourage more blooms by removing spent flower heads as they fade.
