Meadow Clary Plug Plants Salvia pratensis
Also known as meadow sage.
Found now, in the wild, in a small number of sites in southern England, meadow clary is a native clump-forming perennial bearing long spikes of violet-blue flowers throughout June, July and August. It thrives on chalk or limestone soils in sunny open sites, and along south-facing hedgerows and woodland edges. Our meadow clary plug plants are perfect for informal gardens, wildlife gardens and meadows where their blue flowers look good alongside the yellow blooms of bird's foot trefoil or kidney vetch.
One of the RHS Plants for Pollinators, meadow clary is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
