Sage - Lilac
This hardy perennial sage sends up tall, arching spikes with violet/blue flowers which are magnets for bees! Planting this sage supports the bee population while adding colour and height to your garden at the same time. That’s a win-win! Prefers well drained soil and full sun. Let it go to seed and you will find new seedlings popping up the following season. Begins blooming in early summer.
Hardiness zone: 3-8
Bloom type: Perennial
Sow indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost and transplant into a sunny, well drained location outside after frost. Space plants 30-45cm apart. Can also be direct seeded outdoors after last frost. Sow seeds thinly and press into soil. Keep evenly moist until emergence in 15-21 days.
