Salvia Caradonna Description

Perennial Salvia adds some of the most powerful, and electrifying color to the sun perennial garden in early summer.

Upright purple stems give way to numerous, rich, violet-purple flower spikes in early summer, and compliment each other nicely.

The leaves have a pleasing aroma when crushed. Blooming in early summer, and growing up to 24 inches tall. One of the more upright Salvias on the market.

Plant Salvia Caradonna in normal, well drained soil. They do their best in full sun. Salvias will bloom much longer in the season if deadheaded.

Cutting the flowers for bouquets encourages new flower buds for a prolonged flowering performance. Salvias look charming in garden designs when paired with the yellow or golden forms of Coreopsis.

Special Features: Butterfly Lovers, Cut Flower, Deer Resistant, Drought Tolerant, Easy Care, Heat Tolerant, Hummingbirds Lovers, Reblooming

Ideas and How-to's



Soil: Average, dry to medium, well-drained soil. Prefers moist, gravelly or sandy soils with good drainage.
Light:  Full sun to part shade
Water: Dry to medium -- Plants may repeat bloom throughout the summer, but need regular moisture to encourage this.
Spacing: 1 - 2 ft
Fertilizing: Apply a slow release, balanced, granular fertilizer in spring as new growth emerges.
Winterizing: No special care 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.
