Salvia 'May Night' Description

Salvia May Night brings some of the most powerful and electrifying color to the perennial garden. 

Upright stems give way to numerous rich, violet-purple flower spikes in early summer on 18 inch tall plants.

Salvia May is easy to grow and comes back reliably year after year. Plant in well-drained soil in a sunny to part shaded spot. Make sure to remove spent blooms to encourage flowering all summer long. Cutting flowers for bouquets encourages new flower buds for prolonged flowering.

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

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.
