The flowers, more than 3 cm long, are of an intense, velvety violet, with a purplish blue light in its centre. The flowering starts abundantly in May and continues until the first frosts.
VIOLETTE DE LOIRE ® has an upright and well-branched shape.
The foliage is small, dark green, semi-evergreen and naturally aromatic.
An easy plant for the garden, in well draining soil, also tolerates being planted in a pot. The Salvia range on sale by SAPHO offer a beautiful palette of colours.
Spring pruning is essential, but only after the hard frosts are finished. Trim the plants back by half to 30 or 40 cm.
Pick off wilted flowers, allowing a summer flowering of better quality.
