Salvia nemorosa 'Mainacht' (Lamiaceae)
(SAL-vee-a knee-more-OH-sa)
Maynight Salvia

1997 Perennial Plant Association Plant of the Year. 'Mainacht' (or 'May Night') is a low-growing, Salvia that comes into bloom in early summer, bearing multiple spikes of deep violet-blue flowers. If you'll keep it deadheaded, it will rebloom throughout the summer. Like most Salvias, 'May Night' wants a sunny, well-drained site. We use it at the front of sunny borders, where it blends handsomely with Hemerocallis 'Happy Returns'. Honored for its beauty and adapability. Not native.
