Hands down the best purple sage and one of the best tried and true garden stalwarts we carry. 'Caradonna' has neat and tidy spires of purple stems, purple buds and purple flowers. It is strongly upright and structural in the garden as long as soils are not too rich or the light too low. It blooms over an extended period and will rebloom with deadheading.
