Color Spires® 'Crystal Blue' Perennial Salvia | Proven Winners

‘Crystal Blue’ Salvia is the first of its kind – an incredibly unique light sky blue (most perennial Salvias are darker purple), a cool shade perfectly fitting for a perennial that blooms relatively early in the season.

Salvia is a staple item for every sunny garden. It asks little more than sunshine and a little drink every once in a while in return for producing a bountiful mass of colorful flower spikes from late spring into early summer. It forms a dense, rounded clump of aromatic, rugose grey-green foliage that looks nice all season long and is not enjoyed by rabbits or deer.

  • Maintenance Notes: 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.
