Medium sized plant, around 30 inches tall. Dramatic spires of bright purple, hood-like flowers on stately, narrow spikes bloom July to September. Green leaves with a subtle red tinge provide a pleasing backdrop for the vibrant purple blooms of this very striking plant. Adaptable to almost any situation, it is happiest in damp conditions. Being the same vibrant colour or Salvia Amistad, if your garden is not suited to Salvia, maybe this will do the trick?
