Salvia Victoria Blue
The Salvia Victoria Blue, Salvia farinacea ‘Victoria Blue’, is a compact plant that is a late bloomer but can continue blooming for a long time. ‘Victoria Blue’ has intense deep blue flowers. It is great for center pieces in containers or in mass plantings in rows, or as backdrop for other shorter flowers.
Victoria is a dwarf form of the species only getting up to 1-2 feet tall. The plant habit is erect but densely branched. This Salvia is also known as Mealy-Cup Sage because the flowers and stems are fuzzy.
Having bluish green leaves, the intense blue flower spikes of this plant are a great contrast and will bloom until first frost in autumn. Deadheading might help insure rebloom into autumn.
Native to the Southwest, ‘Victoria Blue’ works well in borders, in mass plantings and as a cut flower. It will also attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden!
