East Friesland Salvia nemorosa Woodland Sage Plant
This perennial tolerates drought and blazing sun!
12-inch dwarf plant blooms in early summer, then repeats!
Masses of very long, pencil-thin, vibrantly colorful bloomspikes arise on this perennial Sage! The deep blue blooms are richly colorful on upright 18-inch plants, blooming heavily in early summer and then repeating their fine show later in the season. A spectacular source of dark, intense color and narrow, vertical form, 'East Friesland' is a wonder in the front of the border, and combines well with Shasta Daisies. The flowers attract butterflies, and are superb for cutting.

This plant did exactly what I wanted it to do and it turned out so beautiful. It isnt hard to keep up with and it is well worth the purchase.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits.
