"A must for every garden" says Penelope Hobhouse, so if you’ve yet to grow this robust, beautiful, architectural & long blooming cottage garden favorite – this could be your year! More colorful than common "Clary Sage", ‘Piemont’ gives us huge candelabra-like spikes of 1.5" two-toned lavender & white flowers held in showy, conspicuous intense violet-purple calyces. Blooming lasts for several months starting in late Spring (right in time to fill that gap between Spring & Summer & those calyces keep the show going to Fall!). Pretty, aromatic & fuzzy heart-shaped leaves. Highly valued as a medicinal. Deer resistant! Self-sows. To 5' high & 1.5' wide.
