Salvia (Sage) SAL-vee-uh

Salvias are a large genus with over 900 species of annuals, perennials and shrubs. Upright stems have spikes of tiny flowers that are tubular with two lips, the lower one usually spreading.  Salvias prefer full sun and well-drained soil.  These are tough plants that perform well in bright locations.  Drought tolerant once established. In almost constant bloom, salvia will add tons of color to your summer border or containers. Salvia is prized for its rich blue, red or white flowers that form on stately stalks that are easy to cut for fresh bouquets. Butterflies and hummingbirds also enjoy salvia’s nectar-rich blooms.
