Meadow Sage Growing and Maintenance Tips

Best grown in a moist, average or dry, well-drained soil, in full sun. They are drought tolerant once established. Plants will continue to rebloom throughout the summer if regular moisture is provided. They may become floppy midsummer, particularly if they are grown in a rich soil and in too much shade. Consider supporting the flowers or shearing them back to the basal foliage.
