Salvia (Salvia Farinacea Blue Victory) - Growing Salvia seed is so rewarding. The butterflies and hummingbirds will love your garden when you grow these beauties! Blue Victory Salvia plants are heavy blooming, compact and give a spectacular display of color. 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 border plant, container plant, or as a cut flower for fresh or dried bouquets. The plants are tender perennials that are commonly grown as annuals in most cold winter areas.

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!

Sow Salvia seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before last frost, or outside after danger of frost has passed. Do not cover the flower seeds since they need light to germinate. The seeds need continual moisture, and for the first year, water the plants to help them establish well. Clumps can also be divided in the spring.
