Salvia azurea (Lamiaceae)
(SAL-vee-a a-ZEW-ree-a)
Azure Sage

Our hardiest Salvia with a range spanning from TX to NE and east into the Carolinas. A beautiful soft blue brightens the late-summer and fall garden when tubular flowers open along its frosty green stems. Reaches a height of 3-5' in full sun for an airy effect, sprawling and popping through companion plants; pinch back through summer for a bushier, more compact form. Drought-resistant and continues blooming through the first few light frosts of the year.
