Description

Height x Spread: 150cm x 60cm

Commonly known as 'Bog Sage', this tall Salvia produces short spikes of clear blue flowers on branching, mostly naked, stems above slightly leathery, pointed green leaves. Naturally found in South American damp grasslands where it will flower throughout the summer.

It is ideal for the back of a moist but sunny border. It looks amazing combined with oranges, burgundies and clear yellows. Half hardy, in colder areas apply a layer of mulch to protect the underground shoots over winter. It grows best in reasonably rich, moist soil, that does not dry out in the summer, in full sun or part shade.

Available for Mail Order from April - August
