Why We Love It

A first-choice destination for bees and butterflies, the deep violet-blue flower spikes of Salvia nemorosa ‘Ostfriesland’ will be a hive of activity with pollinators all summer and into autumn.

Spires of intense colour are held above clumps of green foliage, making a dramatic feature when grown towards the front of borders.

This robust, Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit-winning perennial works a treat when planted in gravel and Mediterranean-style gardens, too.

How to Plant

Into the Ground

  1. Dig garden compost or well-rotted manure into the soil before planting.
  2. Water the plant thoroughly around an hour before planting.
  3. Make a hole that's slightly wider than the rootball but the same depth.
  4. Remove the temporary container and plant at the same height as it was growing in the pot.
  5. Firm in and water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot that’s twice the size of the rootball.
  2. Ensure it has plenty of drainage holes.
  3. Fill with good quality compost.
  4. Make a hole that’s slightly bigger than the rootball.
  5. Place the plant into the hole at soil level.
  6. Firm in and water well.
