Salvia (Meadow Sage) sylvestris ‘Snow Hill’

‘Snow Hill’ features densely-flowered, spike-like racemes of pure white flowers which bloom in June and continue throughout the summer. Flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies. This salvia cultivar is a compact plant, which typically grows only to 20″ tall. This plant is a mint family member, which has narrow, dark green, basal leaves (to 5″) and smaller stem leaves. It is a very hardy, drought tolerant plant that fills with white flower spikes and lasts most of the season. Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers moist soils with cool nights. May become somewhat floppy in humid summer conditions. Removing spent flower spikes helps extend bloom period.

‘Snow Hill’ provides long summer bloom to the perennial border, rock garden, cottage garden, wild garden or naturalized planting.
