Salvia is a large genus, containing about 900 species. In our climate mostly common (evergreen) sage is grown for culinary uses. Also, very popular are those of subtropical origin that are grown here as annuals with long flowering season. We concentrate on herbaceous perennials which are not widely cultivated and we believe that there are species, hybrids, and varieties worth the job.

Mainacht (syn. May Night) is a hybrid between salvia nemorosa and salvia pratensis. It is a clump forming perennial with 50-60 tall spikes of deep indigo blue flowers in June and July. Leaves are mid green, lanceolate, wrinkled, and softly hairy. The stems are erect and strong enough to be used as cutflower.

Wood sage will grow in almost any well-drained soil. For best results grow it in light, humus-rich, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade. It is perfectly hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4) and will grow in outdoor pots and throws, too.
