Salvia x sylvestris (Salvia 'May Night')
Also known as Meadow Sage.
Salvia May Night makes a brilliant perennial border plant, with deep purple blooms that are quite striking. As it is the case with most salvias, it needs soil rich in organic matter and good drainage. Its foliage is rough-textured and aromatic, but its tidy overall appearance makes it welcome in any garden.
