Saliva Pink Caradonna Overview

Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna Pink Inspiration' is a perennial cultivar that produces bright pink flowers on erect stems throughout summer. Contrasting with the flowers, its narrow, rough, green leaves are sweetly aromatic. Also known as Balkan Clary 'Caradonna Pink Inspiration' or Saliva Pink Caradonna, it is hardy and likes moist, well-drained soil. It is often seen in Mediterranean-style planting schemes and is particularly suitable for coastal gardens. A low-maintenance plant, it can be deadheaded regularly to encourage more flowers.
