You can't beat this kind of color! The cobalt blue blooms positively radiate color, popping out wonderfully against the dark stems.

This Meadow Sage always looks its best thanks to its dense, uniform, and rounded habit. The sphere-like mass of panicles is a riot of color, with deep purple calyxes and lighter cobalt blue blooms that will light up the border, meadow garden, or container beautifully.

Color Spires® Violet Riot is a Proven Winners® ColorChoice® plant chosen for its exceptional beauty and performance. To be selected for this group, it was thoroughly tested in trial gardens all around the world, and found to have superb health and vigor as well as spectacular blooms.

Commonly known as Meadow Sage or Woodland Sage, S. nemerosa is a must-have for every sunny garden: it asks for little more than the occasional drink, and rewards with lovely, aromatic foliage and plenty of blooms! Deer, rabbits, and other nibblers leave this plant alone, but once the long, bud-packed bloomspikes arise, it is irresistible to "good" visitors like butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds!

The mid-sized purple flowers make a lovely companion for white Shasta Daisies and a great underplanting for warm-toned Roses. Zones 3 to 8.
