Salvias are one of the best sun loving perennials for north Texas gardens. Enjoy their vigorous spring show followed by occasional summer flushes.  Salvia nemorosa is a dwarf perennial with long, prominent flower spikes. Perfect for front borders, ‘New Dimension’ is a shorter and more compact variety than S. nemorosa ‘May Night’. Sheer plants back after their first bloom to rejuvenate foliage and promote new blooms. Once established this plant becomes drought tolerant, however, prefers moist well-drained soil with regular watering. Available in 1 gallon and 8 count trays.
