Spikes of deep purple calyxes and tubular buds open to display the dark purple colored two-lipped tubular flowers that are produced from spring to fall atop this densely branching compact perennial Salvia with excellent flower power. Mirage™ Deep Purple Salvia, a form of Autumn Sage or Salvia greggii, was selected for its heat and cold tolerance, compact rounded habit, and exceptional flower power. Its vigorous well-branched compact habit is perfectly suited for use as a low maintenance and forgiving container specimen as well as in hot and sunny garden and landscape settings. The dark colored flowers are sure to attract low flying hummingbirds as well as the occassional butterfly and larger bees with its nectar rich flowers. Provide a well-drained soil in full to mostly sunny conditions and never keep soggy wet. Images courtesy of Darwin Perennials, all rights reserved. Item# 12547
