The Salvia 'Purple Rain', Salvia verticillata, has glowing purple stems loaded with masses of deep purple flowers that bloom from June to October. With its dark green basal leaves and aromatic foliage, it makes an attractive accent all summer long. It has a plant height of 18" and a spread of 12-18" and stays in excellent compact form. Salvia 'Purple Rain' should be planted in full sun in a moist well-drained area. To increase bloom time, it should be cut back after the first bloom. 'Purple Rain' is a magnet for butterflies, bees and hummingbirds and is deer-resistant. It is hardy for container gardening and provides excellent cut flowers. Blooms look wonderful next to Sedum 'Matrona', Achillea 'Coronation Gold' and Salvia 'Snow Hill'.
