Salvia nemerosa 'Cardonna' ... nice !

I have this salvia "Cardonna" ... in three places in the back garden. I fell in love with salvia the minute I had a dramatic pairing with May Night (I think) and an orange Bradshaw Geum yes I read that the pairing would be a knock out .. so I had to see for myself .. and YES ! it is amazing. Then I read about Cardonna and how well it took to tough areas and really packed a punch with its wow purple colour .. done deal .. I had the tough areas galore in my back borders .. and they do take hold and shine that gorgeous deep purple. I like the fact that nasty bugs don't appreciate salvias that much .. another plus for me !

I have May Night. I think I'll look for the Bradshaw Geum and see if you are right.

Jane Marie .. the bloom timing for the two is a little lopsided, but I think you will see the wow factor all the same : )
