Introducing Sage 'Nachtvlinder', a fully hardy and reliable perennial Salvia that brings elegance to your garden. With its sumptuous velvet purple flowers, this variety blooms from June to October, attracting bees and butterflies with its aromatic fragrance reminiscent of blackcurrant. Standing at a height of 60cm, it's perfect for mid-border planting and thrives in full sun.

Enhance your rose garden by underplanting the roses with Sage 'Nachtvlinder', providing protection against fungal diseases. This bushy shrub, with its velvet-like plum-purple petals and hooded flowers, graces your garden throughout summer and autumn. Once established in freely draining soils, it becomes drought tolerant and displays exceptional hardiness.

To extend the flowering period, simply remove the fading flower spikes. For optimal growth, apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure in spring. Take precautions against excessive cold and waterlogged soils. Sage 'Nachtvlinder' is a magnificent salvia variety, reaching approximately 1m in height and width. Originating from Mexico, it prefers warmer climates, but can still thrive in the UK with winter protection.

With its minty-scented leaves and captivating pea-like blooms that transition to a deep purple, Sage 'Nachtvlinder' adds beauty and charm to any sunny spot. It flourishes in well-drained borders or large pots, making it a versatile choice for your garden. Flowering from spring to early autumn, this frost-hardy sage may benefit from taking cuttings in the far North to safeguard against severe winters.

Maintaining Sage 'Nachtvlinder' is simple. In spring, once new growth emerges and the risk of frost has passed, it's ideal to trim back flowering shrub sages, shaping them as desired. If the plant becomes leggy, a light summer cut can encourage new growth and more flowers. Regular deadheading promotes continuous blooming throughout the season.

Beyond its ornamental appeal, Sage 'Nachtvlinder' has a rich history of culinary usage. While primarily grown for its attractive flowers, both the leaves and flowers can be used to flavor food and drinks. The slight minty edge in its sage flavor adds a refreshing twist to summer beverages.

Don't miss the opportunity to add Sage 'Nachtvlinder' to your garden and herb border. Its alluring presence will captivate anyone who lays eyes upon it, making it a must-have plant for any gardening enthusiast!
