Hardy Salvia Plants

Hardy Salvia plants produce dense, upright spikes bursting with showy flowers above attractively-textured foliage. Being extremely appealing to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, deer tend to leave them alone. They have very few pest or disease problems.


Hardy Salvia, pronounced SAL-vee-uh, and most commonly called Meadow Sage, starts blooming in late spring and continues into the fall. They are drought tolerant and tolerate poor soils so you can pretty much “plant ‘em and forget ‘em”. Pruning the spent blooms will encourage re-blooming, but why wait until they’re spent? They make stunning cut flowers to add height and texture to summer vases. Salvia plants are also available in an annual variety.

Purple Rain Hardy Salvia Plant

Price $6.30

Our 'Purple Rain' Hardy Salvia Plant has a slightly different growth habit than most salvias, being somewhat sprawling, forming mounds of silvery green foliage atop which the stout, fuzzy stems arch haphazardly, albeit naturally, in varying directions. More drought tolerant than many Meadow Sage, showy smoky purple blossoms decorate these low-maintenance flower spikes, sometimes bearing more than one flower spike per stem. Great for naturalizing in your landscape, they also bring fragrance and color to your indoor cut flower arrangements. We think you’ll like this one! Each 3-inch pot contains one Purple Rain Hardy Salvia plant.
