They feature multiple spikes of blue and white two-toned flowers over a long season starting in late spring and lasting through fall. Leaves are long and toothed, soft green nearly silver in color, especially the undersides. They are great as a drought tolerant border plant, container plant, or as a cut flower for fresh or dried bouquets.

Blue Salvia grows well in lean to average soil and prefers slightly dry soil that is well drained. Fertilize only as needed. They will bloom continuously in warm weather and survive light freezes. Afternoon shade is appreciated in very hot areas, and it prolongs the life of the plant which may last several years. In ideal conditions, plants may last up to 5 years. As an added benefit, Salvias are generally deer resistant!
