Salvia - Plumosa

The Salvia ‘Plumosa’, Salvia nemorosa, has glowing purple stems loaded with deep, double purple flowers that bloom from June to October. With its gray-green basal leaves and aromatic foliage, it makes an attractive accent all summer long. It has a plant height of 18” and a spread of 18-24” and stays in excellent compact form. Salvia ‘Plumosa’ should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first bloom. ‘Plumosa’ is a magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant. It is hardy for container gardening and provides excellent cut flowers. Blooms look wonderful next to Sedum ‘Matrona’, Achillea 'Coronation Gold' and Saliva ‘Snow Hill’. ... details

 

Mountian Fleece Flower - Firetail The Mountain Fleece Firetail, 'Persicaria', a Blooms of Bressingham plant, is a wonderful variety in the Persicaria family. With its superb, medium green leaves it has a plant height of 3-4’ and a spread of 3-4’. The flowers are crimson red and bloom in June and July, but this plant is more noted for its foliage. ‘Firetail’ should be planted in a full sun area but can tolerate some afternoon shade. Sun will make the foliage look its best. It does need a well-drained area, making sure it is not over watered. ‘Firetail’ will look great in any perennial garden, in mixed container, woodland edge or near ponds and streams. Try planting it with your favorite Salvia or Nepta.
