We chose Salvia Koyamae because we thought it would be fun to grow a large, shade loving non-invasive that can add a lot of texture to your garden. The plant works as a ground cover, but also has some height to it in spring it emerges with large leaves with tooth like edges. Through summer and fall it begins to bloom with yellow salvia flowers that native pollinators enjoy. If you're looking for a plant that can grow in shade among your hostas, tiarellas and coral bells. This is a great choice for adding unique texture and lovely yellow flowers late in the season.

Koyamae appreciates, rich, moist soil, and will grow in the shade of trees. It spreads slowly by creeping stems or seeds, and will naturalize an area of Woodland with beautiful textured shrub-like growth. It is not evergreen and will regrow quickly into a large mound each year.

Japanese Yellow Sage - Salvia Koyamae

Easy to grow especially under a tree canopy or in an established forested area. The salvia is easy to care for with little or no maintenance. Soil should stay moist and may require additional watering in periods of drought, but with its tolerance of shade it prefers to grow in areas where direct sunlight isn't a problem and benefits dramatically from a layer of mulch, whether it be hardwood or leaf.
