Indigo Spires Salvia
2' long spires of blue twist around gracefully on our favorite Salvia. Plants flower all summer, with peak bloom occuring late summer into early fall. This Salvia is a show-stopper in the fall garden. Leave old stalks standing, as they protect the crown through winter. Blends wonderfully with grasses, sunflowers and other fall-bloomers.
