Hi Carol, thank you so much for filling me in on this plant. It's amazing the background each plant has, isn't it? My R.Sage will be blooming in about a day or so and I'll take a photograph of it. I have a capture of my plant in my album "flowers". It was taken after a heavy rain. Isn't it fun looking for a new perrenial. You have such a wonderful area to grow such beautiful plants. I do admire your photographs you have posted here on TLF.

Salvia East Friesland - One cannot say enough about Salvia in the garden. East Friesland Salvia is a must have addition for border, mass plantings, or just that little nook that needs a splash of color to complete your pallet. If you're looking for a summer blooming plant with a how of intense color then Salvia East Friesland is the plant addition for your garden. Salvia's are easy to grow and perform best in full sun. The almost iridescent color of this salvia is deep-purple. Commonly called meadow sage but that's where the commonality stops. Heavily flowering over textured leaves, with vivid spikes of color, 1 ½ inches long, starting in mid-June. This is a new plant we just planted, actually while at Walmart last week we spotted this plant while really looking for a butterfly bush. I used to have Salvia and butterfly bush but with our harsh winters the last couple years they both were killed by frost.

Hi Carol nice capture of the Salvia. I have Russian Sage that appears much like your Salvia. Do you know if they are in the same family of plants?
