Hummingbird Sage Salvia guarantica “Black and Blue” I love growing plants to attract birds, bees and bugs!
(Anise-scented sage; Guarani sage) One of the most outstanding and by far most popular ornamental sage varieties, adored for its brilliant cobalt blue blossoms that emerge from black calyxes. Native to Brazil, this variety has earned its reputation for its ability to attract hummingbirds like no other! Whats even more enticing is its fragrant anise scented foliage. Locate in full to part sun in rich, well drained soil. Will quickly flourish in pots that should be brought indoors over winter in our cold zone 5. Flower spikes appear from early summer until frost! Heat, drought tolerant and deer resistant. Can grow up to 6 feet in adequate growing conditions!
