From one of Holland's premier plantsmen, Piet Oudolf, comes this stunning new Salvia pratensis hybrid, a sister seedling to Salvia 'Pink Delight'. The deciduous clump emerges in early spring with basal, light green, hastate leaves which are topped, starting in early April (NC), with up to two dozen 20" tall flowering stems of small lavender-pink (RHS 68D) flowers...a hummingbird celebration. For us, flowering continues through June. Salvia 'Eveline' grows best in an open location with good air movement.
