Salvia (Meadow Sage) sylvestris 'Snow Hill'
Item SL800

'Snow Hill' features densely-flowered, spike-like racemes of pure white flowers which bloom in June and continue throughout the summer. Flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies. This salvia cultivar is a compact plant, which typically grows only to 20" tall. This plant is a mint family member, which has narrow, dark green, basal leaves (to 5") and smaller stem leaves. It is a very hardy, drought tolerant plant that fills with white flower spikes and last most of the season. Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers moist soils with cool nights. May become somewhat floppy in humid summer conditions. Removing spent flower spikes helps extend bloom period.

'Snow Hill' provides long summer bloom to the perennial border, rock garden, cottage garden, wild garden or naturalized planting.

Size: #1 · Hardiness: Zones 4-8

Common: Wood Sage · Exposure: Full Sun

Botanical: Salvia x sylvestris 'SchneehĂĽgel' Snow Hill

Family: Lamiaceae

Height: 18-24" · Spacing: 12-18"

Bloomtime: June-September · Foliage: Medium Green Leaves

Flower: White

Pests: No serious insect or disease problems. Some susceptibility to powdery mildew, leaf spot and rust. White fly and scale are occasional insect pests.

Notes: Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates drought. Prefers moist, gravelly or sandy soils with good drainage. Plants may repeat bloom throughout the summer, but need regular moisture to encourage this. Remove spent flower spikes to help extend the bloom period. Plants may become somewhat floppy and open up as the summer progresses, particularly in humid climates. If plants flop or otherwise depreciate in summer to the point where they look unsightly, consider cutting them back to the basal foliage. In any event, cut plants back after flowering has concluded.

Planting instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.
