Salvia officinalis 'Purpurea'
Purple Garden Sage
Purple Garden Sage likes full sun and well drained soil. Cut off any dead stems when they appear to maintain its appearance. Prune for shape at any time, but never cut back so low there is no growth showing. Unlike Garden Sage, Purple Garden Sage seldom blooms, which keeps maintenance to a minimum. Plant alongside lavender, or other grey-leafed plants, for an attractive combination. Zone 6-9.
