Plant Description

Purple Knockout' is a great selection of the Lyre-leaved Sage that has wide, decorataive, deep burgundy leaves. It is low growing, evergreen, and pretty fast growing making it a good plant for planting along pathways. Although its flowers are inconspicuous, its burgundy leaves would look very handsome with the flowers of Blue Phlox, 'Pink Ridge' Phlox, or Blue-eyed Grass. Give it full sun to mostly shade and dry to good soil.
