If you appreciate the wonder that hummingbirds can bring to the garden then you will be sure to appreciate the wide selection of hummingbird plants that we offer here at Almost Eden. Hummingbird Bushes, Hummingbird Plants, Cigar Plants, Porterweeds, Honeysuckles, Salvias and many more excellent nectar producing plants that are sure to bring the motion and beauty of hummingbirds into your garden.
The large violet colored flowers emerge from loose purple tinged spikes and calyxes from spring to fall attracting hummingbirds and other garden beneficials. Cool Violet Salvia, a selection or hybrid of the Little Leaf or Mountain Sage, Salvia microphylla, boasts excellent vigor and flower power with flowering beginning early and continuing reliably through summer and into fall. In areas where hard freezes do not occur, The Mountain Sages may develop a shrubby semi-woody base, while in zone 8 and colder, established plants act more like herbaceous perennials dying back to near ground level and returning in early spring. Enjoy these colorful pollinator attractors in the garden and landscape or as rewarding and forgiving container specimens. Provide full sun to partly shaded sites in well-drained, fertile soils for optimum vigor and flowering. Images courtesy of Jadelty Plant Propagation Nursery, all rights reserved. Item# 13148
