Salvia lyrata ‘Purple Knockout’ Lyre-leaved Sage. A gorgeous selection of Salvia native to the eastern USA. Plants are mainly grown for the foliage, which forms a mound of large purple-black leaves that remain attractive for the entire season. Adapts to most light situations but appreciates afternoon shade in hot regions. A terrific edging plant, also beautiful in mixed containers, contrasting especially well against plants with gold leaves. The flowers are white and fairly inconspicuous. This will sometimes self seed and comes true. Reported to be quite drought tolerant. Works in all types of soil and is deer resistant!
