An excellent Salvia that blooms almost nonstop, powering through heat, drought and humidity with nary a care. It is quick to establish and simple to grow.

The royal purple florets open from dark, almost black calyxes above the foliage, forming a deep haze over the plant. The leaves are lovely and thick, so can stand up to the heat. An excellent bedding or large container plant that is quick to establish with a long bloom period.

Salvia 'Black and Bloom' is a great choice for gardens or large containers. These rugged plants require little and do so much.

Plant into moderately fertile, to humus rich, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position and water to establish, they become dry tolerant once they have settled in.

The aromatic foliage and abundant flowers attract bees, butterflies and birds. Especially the birds! Sometimes I have found they love the flowers a little too much and the larger birds can bend the branches. But it is wonderful to have the birds and there are enough stems produced by this vigorous Salvia that it still looks good.
