Nothing adds color and interest to a garden like some fantastic foliage. Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage has some fantastic foliage with gorgeous rosettes of burgundy leaves. Leaves change from deep purple in the summer to bright red in the autumn, adding even more interest! Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage is mainly grown for its foliage but it gives off spikes of white to lilac-blue flowers in late spring and summer that make excellent cut flowers. This plant’s twist on the standard salvia will be a welcome addition to your garden!

Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage is easy to grow and resilient. Native to meadows, thickets, and the woods edge in the East Coast of the US, Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage is hardy from zone 4 - 9. Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage is a native alternative to common ajuga groundcovers. The plant makes a great choice for rock gardens, as a ground cover, in containers, or in garden edges or borders. Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage is drought tolerant as well as humidity tolerant. The plants self sow and spread easily. 

Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage Care

Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage prefers sun to part shade in moist or dry soil. You do not need to baby these plants with fussy watering schedules; they need little water and can withstand drought-like conditions. Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage is happy in a wide range of soil pHs from alkaline to acidic. They benefit from a topdressing of compost or a slow-release granular fertilizer at the time of planting, but do not require additional fertilization thereafter. 

Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage does not require any pruning. You can cut back flower stems after blooms are spent to promote new flowers. Allow the plant to die back after the first frost in colder growing zones. The foliage can be cut back to the ground in winter or early spring.  

Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage Spacing

Purple Knockout Lyre Leaved Sage can reach 18 inches tall with a 12-inch spread. Allow 12 to 24 inches of space between plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
