Exclusive. 2015 Plant of the Year. Salvia sylvestris 'Little Night' PPAF is a new, dwarf Meadow sage selected for its tight mounding growth habit and fantastic deep indigo blue flower spikes that cover the plant in late spring and early summer. Drought resistant/drought tolerant plant (xeric). 10-12" tall x 14-16" wide.
Tips For Growing Salvia
Salvia (commonly referred to as ‘Sage’) represent a huge family of ornamental plants that attract a variety of pollinators to their nectar rich flowers. They are resistant to deer and rabbits.
Western Native Salvia: : It is from the Western US that we find our most beautiful native salvia species. For attracting hummingbirds, there are no finer flowers than the Western native sages. Typically, this group of Salvia prefer ‘lean’ (not very fertile), well drained soils. They will grow in dry clay conditions in arid climates but will rot out in clay soils where there is more than about 15 to 18” of precipitation annually.
Western Salvia include:
To get established in USDA zones 5 & 6, Western Salvia (noted above) must be planted in spring or early summer, not in the fall. Protect your new plants over their first winter or two in your garden. Cover each plant with a generous pile of clean straw or pine needles. This allows the plant's crown (junction of root and branches) to mature and obtain maximum cold hardiness.
Old Wolrd Salvia: The Old World Salvia include some of the very best, most durable, longest-lived perennials. These salvia are an excellent choice for gardeners across most of the United States. ‘Old World’ Sages bloom primarily in shades of blue, pink and white. They are well adapted to cold climates and a wide range of soils including clay. The European Salvia are incredibly attractive to honey bees, many of our native bees and bumble bees as well as butterflies.
Old World varieties include:

I planted three Salvia Sylvestris Little Night and not one survived the cold, hard winter, unfortunately. I think they were a bit too small. HCG replaced them (with bigger plants) which I've planted and they are doing well. I'm excited because they're so beautiful.

Lovely little salvia!
from Omaha, Ne
See all my reviews
this wonderful salvia borders my roses in order to keep rabbits away, attractively! Does work, looks pretty, spreading just enough ...this little salvia really likes the sun, in a few places where it didn't get at least 6 hours it did not work...my mistake. I'll order this one again!
Very pleased with this plant.

My Little Love
from Golden CO
This gorgeous plant thrived in one garden and did little on the' hell strip. It was a highlight of the penstemon, sage, and agastache garden. This Spring the three in hell will be moved to where they get more water and richer soil. We have also ordered more from HCG to enhance othet spots.

A gem of color
By Escapist Gardener
from East Bay, CA
Planted in front yard to offset larger plants, this plant quickly got way to growing and has beautiful spikes (just like the pictures) within months of being planted. I have a couple of them, and they both look lovely.

Great blooms first year!
from Boulder, CO
Very large shipped plants were very quick to establish and begin blooming. Nice deep purple color and compact size -- unusual for the purple salvia group. Good rebloom at end of season.

I would buy this product again and again~

Perfect for where I live where the weather and the environment is difficult. I use it in my backyard which faces the west where the sun is it's hottest.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
