Salvia nemorosa East Friesland

Salvia nemorosa East Friesland has its plumes of intense violet-blue flowers highlighted with pink bracts so it's no wonder that bees aren't the only creatures to go wild for this sun-loving member of our range of UK grown Salvias for sale!

Gardeners love its depth of colour and the fact it is so compact and bushy, with blooms reaching only 45cm carried from July to September. Flowers are held above mounds of wrinkly, mid-green foliage.

You may know it as Balkan Clary, Woodland Sage, or Ostfriesland. Formerly classified as Salvia x superba. The plant has been honoured with the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit, which means it passed rigorous trials to perform well in an ordinary garden situation.

Great In Your Garden...

Salvia demand a position in full sun, although they will put up with a little bit of light shade for a couple of hours a day. They like a light, well-drained soil enriched with humus - avoid heavy clay or anywhere that gets waterlogged in winter. These conditions make it perfect for a Mediterranean, gravel or wildlife garden, at the edge of arrangements with other sun-lovers such as Achilleas, grasses and Rudbeckia fulgida deamii. Think of plants that contrast not just in colour but in form as well - the compact Salvia will sit well in front of these two.

They are also great in large containers, where you can create your own mini hot garden if your plot's soil is less than perfect for Salvia - or if you don't have a garden at all!

Add East Friesland to your wildlife garden to attract more bees and pollinators or just use it as edging in a well-drained border.
