Salvia Nemorosa Caradonna ground cover are easy to care for and require very little maintenance. They will thrive in fertile, well drained, soil in full sun though will tolerate partial shade. Give them a good soaking of water when planting and getting established, and then you should only need to supplement rainwater during dry spells. If clumps of Salvia become congested, we recommend dividing them every 3-4 years.

As a rough guide when planting Salvia as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage, and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
