Mealy-cup Sage, Blue Sage (Eng.) Blousalie (Afr.)
Salvia farinacea is native to Texas and Mexico and therefore has tolerance to heat, humidity, and challenging soils, making them very easy to grow with little maintenance. Growing up to 1 m, they produce luminous felt-like deep-blue flowers from spring until autumn (if the dying flowers are kept trimmed off) and perform best in full sun and well-drained soil. Great for beds that need to be showy, and also useful for cutting and drying. They will draw butterflies, bees, and nectar-eating birds to your garden.
