(aka: Salvia nipponica v. glabrescens) Salvia 'Shi Ho' is a dark purple-flowered form of the Japanese woodland sage, Salvia glabrescens. For us, Salvia glabrescens makes an 18" tall x 18" wide clump of dark green hastate leaves topped, starting in October, with short spikes of dark purple flowers...a great way to add color to the early fall woodland garden. As best we can figure, Shi Ho probably means something like "working lady of the evening." Moist, rich soils are best.
