Rockin'® Blue Suede Shoes™ Salvia | Proven Winners

This is a wonderful annual Salvia with light blue flowers each with a black calyx that is compact and richly colored; it is easy and trouble-free. It is sterile so it will not set seed and that means it will just bloom, and bloom and bloom all season without stopping. You can easily trim to keep the shape or size where you want it, and it will branch out and become even thicker and more full of flowers.
