Salvia, Black & Blue

Short Description

Richest blue with florets with black sepals.

Full Description

Hands down, our test garden's most handsome plant: tall, dark green stems; bright sage green leaves; abundant 1 1/2" florets of the richest blue with truly black sepals just below the petals. Not only are they gorgeous, but they bloom relentlessly from late spring to early autumn. The tall, graceful plants, 4 ft. x 3 ft. work beautifully in large pots, but stunningly as borders or hedges.

  • Salvia, Black & Blue is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition for bouquets These flowers were very low maintenance, great for fillers in your flower beds when looking for something mid-size, and best of all add a great splash of color to your summer bouquets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite plant The black and blue salvia has been my absolute favorite for last 3-4 ,years Blooms all summer and lasts well into September. My hummingbirds love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this plant This is hands down my favorite plant. It gets huge in full sun but the ones planted in partial shade were rather small. Hummingbirds loved it as well as bees. They were covered with honey bees and bumble bees all summer and fall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautful addition to the garden The colors really make a statement with all the red and pink salvias I use for my hummers. Grows as an annual here, which stinks, but it is worth the price paid. Massive flowers for a salvia and unlike "Lady In Red" which is easy as pie to harvest seeds from, this one is quite elusive, so it is just easier to buy the plants already grown for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for hummingbirds I bought and started growing this 2 years ago. Unlike a lot of plants labeled "attracts hummingbirds", this really does! Of all the different plants in my hummingbird garden last year, this was the only plant I saw a hummingbird check out. So much for the myth that hummingbirds are only attracted to red flowers! Has beautiful flowers and beautiful rich green foliage. With regular watering you'll have a small bush by fall. Very easy to grow! Seems to prefer morning sun and late-afternoon/evening shade. The only downsides are it's an annual and where I live, the brick and mortar nurseries that carry it are very limited (as in ONE, but only IF they get it in!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for Hummers I garden for wildlife - especially hummingbirds and butterflies. This salvia is, hands down, the absolute favorite of every hummingbird we've ever had - even exotics. Buy it! You won't be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this plant! Thought I'd give it a try since I was looking for this color and needed something that doesn't mind all day sun. The plants arrived in excellent condiiton. They bloomed all summer long, kept their color. The hummingbirds were regular visitors. I very highly recommend this plant to anyone.
