Sage 'Nachtvlinder' Overview

Salvia 'Nachtvlinder' is a long-flowering hardy evergreen that will flower until the first frosts and is frequently grown as annuals as part of summer displays. Their compact but upright growth and aromatic mid-green foliage lift the dark maroon-purple flowers upwards for our appreciation. They have earned a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. Also loved by pollinating insects, these plants have been included in the Royal Horticultural Society “Plants for Pollinators” initiative to showcase plants that support pollinator populations by providing ample nectar and/ or pollen. A great choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden!
