This salvia is easy to grow and does well in full sun or light shade. It does great in nearly any soil, as long as it is well drained. It will even tolerate soil on the drier side. It sports small wispy white blooms and masses of bushy, purple leaves which stay fresh for months. They can make the entire garden sing! You will love the contrast between Purple Volcano’s colors and those of its neighbors. It makes yellow daylilies glow and brings out the warm tones of gaillardias and coreopsis. It looks terrific beside any yellow-leafed plant.
