Winter White from Syngenta Flowers is a compact and grower-friendly habit ideal for smaller containers. Low chilling requirements makes production easy to schedule. A great match to other early spring perennials like Saxifraga and Aubrietia.

Orange, red, pink, white to yellow — a very colorful mix with a mostly lighter center and green foliage. Luckhoffii-Hybr. from Jelitto Perennial Seeds is drought tolerant and can be used for xeriscaping and in waterwise designs. Attractive for butterflies and other pollinators. Moderate self-sowing at suitable locations. Easy to grow. Quick, one-year culture possible.

The Marvel family has the largest flowers of any Salvia nemorosa on the market. Sky Blue Marvel from Darwin Perennials is a light blue addition to the series and has the same great habit as Blue and Rose Marvel. Enjoy a stunning display of color in spring and summer, with little to no maintenance required. Bloom months are March to September. Height: 14 to 16 inches. Spread: 12 to 14 inches. USDA hardiness zones: 4a to 9b.
