24+ Seeds for Salvia / Sage (Salvia Farinacea) VICTORIA BLUE (aka: Mealy Cup Sage, Mealycup Sage). Although named 'blue', they are actually a rich purple color which really POPS in the garden! Especially lovely when planted in groups.
Don't let the delicate looking flowers fool you - these are TOUGH plants! Like all Sage (Salvia), they prefer full sun and fairly dry conditions - they definitely don't like wet feet, but they will bloom from mid-summer to frost for you growing in dry, poor soil and full boiling sun! What more could you want?!
These plants are perennials in zones 9-11 (perhaps perennial even to zone 8) perfectly suited for growing as annuals in colder zones - they self-seed freely for more plants in subsequent years. Oh, and did I mention the hummingbirds love them? These are a perfect addition to any BUTTERFLY garden, too!
These plants reach 18 - 24 inches tall pinch back to make them bush out and you'll get more blooms. Seeds are very small - I suggest starting in pots and setting out to keep them from being washed away by a heavy rain.
