Region: Upper Plains
May Night is completely reliable in Zone 3 and the most popular Salvia sold at the garden centre I work at in northern Alberta. The blue/purple blooms contrast spectacularly with chartreuse and look fabulous in combination with golden/yellow blooms.
Region: Mountain West
Gorgeous deep purple blooms that keep coming all summer long. Does attract TONS of bees. Looks great with Jupiter's Beard.
One of the best hardy perennials in my zone 6. No problems. Great in a sweep. Be sure to snip off the spent bloom stalk for repeat bloom.
Beautiful plant, but some people are highly allergic to it, like me ! Blister city, and I was on steroids for weeks. Bad news !
