Salvia x sylvestris 'Mainacht' is a striking, compact salvi for the herbaceous border, producing masses of flower stems topped by spikes of violet-purple flowers from early to midsummer.
Unlike many salvias, Salvia x sylvestris 'Mainacht' is fully hardy. The felty leaves are finely toothed with pronounced veining. It can either be grown among other upright plants, or be used to contrast with more angular, architectural groupings. It looks particularly good planted next to shrubs and perennials with with dark or silver leaves.
