Salvia nemorosa 'plumosa'

I was looking through plant catalogs earlier today (I really need to stop this lol) and I noticed one particular salvia with HUGE blooms on them. I fell in love with this plant almost instantly. Does anyone grow this plant?? If yes, I may ask you for a division in a few weeks lol.

I had it in a previous garden. It's "okay" I guess, but I prefer 'May Night' and 'Caradonna'.

RE: Salvia nemorosa 'plumosa'

I also had it in a previous garden. I loved the huge blossoms, but the color was hard to find companions for. It only lasted a couple of years before disappearing one winter, but often Salvias have a difficult time here with our acidic soil and high winter moisture .

RE: Salvia nemorosa 'plumosa'

It's one of my favourite salvias. Blooms for a long time when deadheaded.

RE: Salvia nemorosa 'plumosa'

I had it in zone 7. It died second winter.

RE: Salvia nemorosa 'plumosa'

I had it, but it was unforgivably floppy (even when sheared back after first bloom), and had to go.
