A dynamo in the garden with flowers galore. The upright stems of indigo blue flowers can, with a bit of light pruning, repeat into autumn. It is a wonderful border/bedding plant and also works well in containers (where it will be more compact).
The foliage forms a dense, tidy mound below the blooms. It is a condensed and better behaved form of the legendary Salvia 'Indigo Spires' which has been hugely popular around the world for many years.
Salvia ‘Mystic Spires Blue’ is a well branched, tough and hardy. Grows best in full sun with a well drained soil; drainage is especially important over a wet winter. Once established it is quite dry tolerant. Pinch out the spent blooms to keep it blooming and encourage a dense habit. As it goes into winter dormancy it can be pruned back to 20cm to make way for the new growth.
Salvia ‘Mystic Spires Blue’ is compact plant so suitable for pots.
