More Information

Description 'May Night' Sage (Salvia x sylvestris) blooms prolifically with dense spikes of indigo flowers, adding rich color to sunny landscapes! Blooming starts in early summer and continues all summer long. Spikes remain upright and won't bend over in strong winds and rain. You're not the only one that will love the showy blooms. Butterflies and hummingbirds find the flowers irresistible! Worry less knowing this perennial sage is deer resistant and drought tolerant, making it easy to grow! We love how it looks in herb gardens, butterfly gardens, or as an accent. Try adding the flower spikes to cut flower arrangements or crush leaves for a relaxing scent. Details Botanical name: Salvia x sylvestris 'May Night'
Common name: Wood sage
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 18" X 15-18"
Flower color: Indigo
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer
Bloom time: Early summer, midsummer
Features: Rabbit resistant, heat tolerant, fragrant, dry soils, drought tolerant, deer resistant, cold tolerant
Uses: Background, border, cottage gardening, herb gardens, massing, pollinator gardens, specimen
How To Grow Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-draining soils. The more drainage, the better!
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Water: Dry to average.
Spacing: 15 - 18 inches apart
Fertilizing: Generally unnecessary, but apply a slow-release, balanced, granular fertilizer in spring if needed.
Winterizing: No special care is needed. Many gardeners allow the spent foliage to stand until spring and remove it when new growth emerges.
Maintenance & pruning: Remove spent flower spikes to help extend the bloom period. Plants may become somewhat floppy and open up as the summer progresses, particularly in humid climates. If plants flop or otherwise depreciate in summer to the point where they look unsightly, consider cutting them back to the basal foliage.

I was told the plants would liven up and to plant and water them. I did accordingly and there was no saving them. I finally had to dig them up after a few weeks. They looked horrendous right out of the box, completely wilted into the soul, black, and shriveled. I don’t understand how this is “normal”

Love how this brightens this small area up!

I love how these May Night Salvias are preforming after less than 2 months in the ground. Here is a before and after shot of the new tree we planted in March. We added Snow in Summer with has small silver green leaves and small white flowers and it is a creeper, she is fill of buds but the flowers will appear by mid-July. Then there are 2 Indian Summer Rudbeckia amd the 2 May Night Salvias underneath the Sbow Fountain Weeping cherry Tree that we replaced a dead Maple Sugar Tree back in the Spring. Can'r wait to see them in their full beauty at maturity. With the tree geowing to 12 ft tall and no more than 6 inches wide. I believe I will have to widen the bed but it will still be lovely..

Beautiful plant!

My "May Night" Salvia smelled great as soon as I opened the box. The leaves had an incredible fragrance. I replanted it in a medium sized pot, gave it lots of fresh potting soil and put it in a sunny spot. It took a few weeks, but now I have twelve stunning bloom clusters in a gorgeous purple! From other reviews I know to expect these to get much bigger. I will either find a bigger pot or find a spot for them in the yard. since I read that they stay warmer over winter if they're in the ground. I might cover them with fabric during later Winter/early Spring, when we get the occasional ice snap. Thanks for shipping this plant with care. I will shop with you again!

May Night Salvia

I bought 12 of these May Night Salvia in Spring of 2020. We are in Wisconsin, Zone 5b if that helps you. Planted them and they all did splendidly! This year, they are growing beautifully, but was surprised at how large they got. Description says they will grow 18 inches tall and wide, but mine are much larger! I would say they are at LEAST 2 feet tall standing loud and proud! The bright purple flowers stand straight up and are gorgeous, especially in the sunlight! Definitely eye catching. I don’t know why mine grew so big; I must have some very fertile soil. I planted them in front of a row of Sonic Bloom Red Reblooming Weigela shrubs, so I hope the Salvia doesn’t grow as tall as the Weigela shrubs! I know the Weigelas should be 4-5 feet tall eventually. I wanted them to be a colorful backdrop for the Salvia. I have the Salvia staggered with Oso Easy Peasy Roses. They are a bright pink and look so pretty with the purple Salvia plant. They are just loaded too with buds about to burst open!
