Properties and uses:
The sage ‘Melen’ has been selected especially for its regular compact shape and many branches. Its pinkish white blossom is spectacular and offers an abundance of flowers from the beginning of May right through to the first frosts.
Its foliage is slightly scented.
This sage is highly drought resistant when settled in, but do not hesitate to spread mulch at its foot in areas with harsh winters.
It will create a surprise whether planted in a low hedge, in a border or even in a pot with ornamental grasses.
To keep its superb compact effect, you must cut it well back after the last frost.
