Size: 1 gallon pot.
Grown mainly for the foliage, Salvia lyrata Purple Knockout has compact basal rosettes of shiny burgundy leaves that turn to deep purple in summer and then to red in the fall. Spikes of pale lilac blue flowers appear in spring and summer, but sometimes the flowers have only calyces and no petals. Very easy to grow in just about any soil, it will self sow to spread and become a dense groundcover that makes a great native substitute for Ajuga. Product photos are for illustrative purposes only.
