Sallyrosa™ April Night is known by several names, including salvia nemorosa, salvia x sylvestris, wood sage, and meadow sage. It is a new petite salvia that blooms a month earlier than the popular ‘May Night’ variety. This provides an extended bloom period from spring to summer. Blue-violet flower spikes sprout up from dense, sturdy, upright foliage. It has remarkable drought and mildew resistance. April Night is ideal for meadows, garden borders, and mixed patio containers. It’s classified as an herbaceous perennial. This plant thrives in average, well-drained soils. It should be watered deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish a root system. Once established, the frequnecy can be reduced as the plant tolerates periodic drought. Fertilize before new growth begins in the springtime. Remove any spent flowers to promote a continued bloom. It should be pruned annually after flowering. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, while being resistant to deer and rabits. It generally likes moist, well-drained soils that are normal, sandy, or clay type. Full-to-mostly sunlight conditions serve it best. It may flop if the soil is too rich or the shade too excessive. Regular watering encourages more active blooming, though it dislikes damp spots in the winter.
