Perennial sages are a beautiful addition to any summer garden and come in a variety of cultivars ranging from 18-24 inches to 2-3 feet in height. One of my all-time favorites for long bloom time and vibrant color is Salvia nemerosa 'May Night'. This lovely perennial is drought tolerant, deer resistant and is attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds. It was also voted as Perennial Plant of the Year in 1997!
