Blue Salvia

 
 

   Blue salvia are some of the most popular salvias on the market today. There are several different cultivars of blue salvia. One of the most commonly requested blue salvia is the ‘blue hills’ variety. This blue salvia features glowing purple stems that are loaded with true blue flowers. The blue hill salvia will bloom intermittently from June through October. Growing to fifteen inches in height, this blue salvia should be planted in full sun with moist, well-drained soil.

   Another common blue salvia is the salvia officinalis. This blue salvia is one of the most common varieties of salvia, and has spikes of bright blue-violet blooms that appear for a few weeks in mid to late spring. This blue salvia makes a most lovely early season display of color.

   A third blue salvia is the salvia Caradonna. This blue salvia, like the blue hill salvia, has glowing purple stems covered in violet flowers that bloom from June to October. The aromatic foliage of this blue salvia is gray green in color, and makes an attractive accent all summer long. With a plant height of thirty inches, and a mature spread of twelve to eighteen inches, this blue salvia was awarded the outstanding new Perennial award in 2000 by the international hardy plants union.

   Blue salvia come in a variety of sizes and tints. The foliage ranges from light green to gray-green to almost black. The blooms can be true blue, to violet, to lavender. Wherever a gardener would like to add a splash of vibrant blue color, the blue salvia make a most excellent choice.
