xG3 – Lyra Leaf Sage


Salvia lyrata ‘Purple Knockout’

Native hybrid: Mainly grown for its rosettes of glossy burgundy leaves that transform to a deep purple in summer followed by red in the autumn, this native selection is the perfect substitution for non-native Ajuga. . An awesome groundcover plant, it is also beautiful in mixed containers, contrasting especially well against plants with gold leaves. Adapts to most light situations but appreciates afternoon shade in hot regions.  Nondescript, pale blue flowers appear in early summer – sometimes without petals, but they still attract a bevy of pollinators, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
