    Woodland Sage (Salvia nemorosa) 'New Dimension Rose' produces very pretty pink blossoms, a nice variation from Salvia's typical lavender-blue range. It is a small cultivar and has grown to only about 9 inches in my garden, compared to over 12 inches for 'Caradonna' and over 2 feet for 'May Night.' Like 'Caradonna,' it enjoys medium to dry soil in full sun. It has not bloomed much its first year, but I am reserving judgment till it has had another year to mature.
