Summer Sonata Salvia Collection

Salvias are lush, colourful, flowering plants that pollinators prize, deer dislike and every gardener with a sun-filled landscape should grow! These sun-loving, salt-tolerant perennials are part of the Lamiaceae family and often referred to as garden sage. These fragrant plants are often grown in borders and container gardens, tolerating heat and drought well. Honeybees, hummingbirds and butterflies are all drawn to the abundance of nectar-rich, tubular flowers these plants produce. The bright blooms are nicely set off by lots of deeply textured, dark green leaves, whose aroma fends off hungry deer and rabbits.

Standouts in the Landscape
Salvias appeal to gardeners looking for a carefree perennial that returns every year from late spring to early summer to fill the sunny areas of their gardens with gorgeous colour and remarkable texture. We searched far and wide gathering three stunning varieties, all virtuoso performers, to create the Breck's Summer Sonata Salvia Collection.

Full, Well-Rounded Plants Exhibit Excellent Vigour
The plants' uniform, rounded clumping is characteristic of this selection of Salvia nemorosa and Salvia pratensis hybrids. When they are in bloom, their large, nectar-laden flower spikes will be irresistible to the butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds that populate your neighbourhood. Long after the flowers have faded, you'll still have a front-row seat to the lush, aromatic, crinkled foliage!

Includes 1 each of Azure Snow, Back to the Fuchsia, and Violet Riot
Azure Snow
Spectacular when planted in drifts! Trumpet-shaped flowers fill its 18-20" stems with amazing spires of deep violet-blue and white, bicolour blooms. Forms a refined, compact clump with handsome, dark green foliage. PP30534

Back to the Fuchsia
Charcoal-coloured, 22-24" stems bear dark pink-fuchsia flowers that rebloom when sheared back! Its proliferation of spectacular flower spikes open above a habit of dark green foliage. Its fragrant blooms make a wonderful addition to arrangements of fresh or dried flowers. PP32920

Violet Riot
A riot of colour for sun-washed gardens! Its dark green, densely packed, wrinkly foliage is the perfect backdrop for the long, vibrant, violet-blue flower spires that form on its 22" stems. Deep purple calyxes partly sheathe the blooms for added colour. PP26273

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
