Meadow clary, or meadow sage, produces prolific sprays of light violet, purple, pink or off-white flowers in mid-summer. Compared with some salvia species, the flowering season is short, but it is all concentrated into one intense session lasting six to eight weeks, when the plants virtually disappear beneath a cloud of large claw-shaped blooms. The colour intensity is not strong in some forms, but this group is outstanding, with its bold spikes of hooded lilac or blue flowers and showy, pink-tinted calyces. Plants cannot be divided or transplanted raise new plants from seed. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in recognition of its outstanding excellence.
