Salvia nemorosa 'Plumosa'
Floppy, not quite upright.
Ideal Sun Conditions:
Unlike, S. nemorosa ‘May Night’, I don’t mind deadheading this salvia, perhaps because of its plum color it does not require as persistent deadheading. Notice the gray-green leaves of ‘Plumosa’, versus the green leaves of ‘May Night’. The stems tend to flop, but the flower stalks continue to grow and flower upright -- very strange.
Use in Garden
Sun to sun/part shade medium water-use bed or border towards the front of the border. Butterfly Garden.
Deadheading is minimal. Topdress with 1 inch of compost in the spring.
