An excellent Salvia that blooms almost nonstop, powering through heat, drought and humidity with nary a car.
Salvia ‘Black and Bloom’ was a feature plant at this year’s Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show and the crowd were huge fans. A percentage from the sales of this plant go to supporting Beyond Blue, a charitable organisation that provides support for mental health.
The deep blue florets open from dark, almost black calyxes above the foliage, forming a deep haze over the plant. The leaves are lovely and thick, and stand up to the heat.
Salvia ‘Black and Bloom’ is a great choice for gardens or containers. These rugged plants require little and do so much.
