Salvia is a top choice for many gardeners due to its low maintenance qualities and attractive flowers. It features cold hardiness, drought tolerance, and deer resistance. Beginning in spring and lasting all summer long, spikes of blue and purple flowers rise from its grey green foliage, decorating the landscape. Deadheading and pruning will encourage prolonged blooming. Plant in full sun with well draining soil. Bees and butterflies will flock to your garden with this new addition.
