Salvias are some of the best flower-power plants around! They add colour throughout spring to Autumn, with tall flower spikes that create texture and movement in the garden. With close to 1,000 species worldwide, salvias are members of the mint family which also includes rosemary, thyme, lavender, and basil. Ornamental salvias are also a relative of common sage.
The flowers of Salvia Black & Bloom are a striking deep purple/blue colour, rare to find on a plant.
They are water-wise when established, withstanding heat and light frost, bouncing back readily in spring. If you live in a frost free area, they will stay green through winter, although may not flower. Most varieties are native to hot, dry climates and can be grown as perennials that require little attention. They are attractive to bees.
