Salvia lyrata 'Purple Knockout' - Lyre-leaf Sage from Pleasant Run Nursery

Salvia lyrata 'Purple Knockout'

Sage - Lyre-leaf

‘Purple Knockout’ Lyre-leaf Sage is a native Sage which has bright purple basal foliage, especially in spring and early summer. The flower spikes are largely inconspicuous but attract bees and butterflies. Salvia lyrata ‘Purple Knockout’ seeds readily and can form a dense groundcover in a sunny location, much like purple Ajugas do in shade. ‘Purple Knockout’ performs best in well drained sites, and with its showy basal foliage would make a good green roof candidate.
