About May Night Salvia (Meadow Sage)

The May Night Salvia (Meadow Sage) variety is a tried and true classic (winning 1997 Perennial Plant of the Year) that has been a great feature in gardener’s landscapes for years. The neat and compact growth habit and deep-purple bloom spikes make for a great accent or can be planted in a mass to create a great display of color. This water-wise perennial will thrive in hot sunny locations and can adapt to many growing locations. This salvia is resistant to both deer and rabbits. Deadheading flower spikes and providing extra water in dry spells can vastly improve bloom production on this plant.

May Night Salvia Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 4-9.

Plant in Full Sun for best results.

Well-draining soil is important for avoiding root rot.

Water regularly after planting. 2-3 times per week for the first growing season. This will allow the roots to establish deep into the soil, helping to ensure future success. During this time, check the soil around this salvia. If the soil is drying out or remaining soggy, you will need to adjust your watering schedule accordingly.

Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer in spring with a Fertilizer recommended for perennials.

May Night Salvia Spacing Recommendations

Plant Your May Night Salvia a foot apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, space plants 24-36+ inches apart to allow for vigorous growth. Or, for an impressive planting more quickly.
