Salvia koyamae is a delightful Japanese sage that forms a 2' tall x 3' wide clump in the woodland garden. The slowly enlarging clump is composed of hastate, hairy green leaves that give a bold effect in the garden. While Salvia koyamae will grow in the morning sun, it prefers a shady woodland setting. The clumps are adorned with terminal spikes of soft yellow tubular flowers that just top the foliage from late summer through fall...great in a mass planting! There are never enough fall-flowering, deer-resistant perennials for the woodland shade garden, so Salvia koyamae is especially valuable.
