Salvia

Salvia

The perennial salvia will generally grow from between eighteen inches and thirty-six inches, yet there are some that are much smaller. Most of the perennial salvia will only over winter in warmer climates, but several exist which are also hardier. Many gardeners will have perennial salvia growing alongside annuals, in order to allow for a good degree of change from year to year. While they are harder to find and care for, well developed perennial salvia will allow for many years of beauty and grace in any garden. Companion plants include Artemisia, hemerocallis, and papaver.
