An excellent Salvia that blooms almost nonstop, powering through heat, drought and humidity with nary a car. It is quick to establish and simple to grow.
The deep blue florets open from dark, almost black calyxes above the foliage, forming a colourful 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 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.
