Plant Type: Perennials
The tall, spiky flowers of 'Blue Hill' are the closest to true blue of any hardy salvia available. This selection is very long-flowering with a wonderful compact habit. Its foliage is aromatic when crushed.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Salvia is easy to grow in almost any climate. Though it is drought tolerant, it will bloom better with regular watering. Deadheading encourages a longer bloom time. If plants get leggy during the season, cut them all the way back to the newly developed foliage. If cut back, plants may rebloom in fall but often the flowers are fewer and smaller.
