Just in time for Halloween! Ok the Halloween thing is a bit silly, but who could resist with a name like Salvia transylvanica!
Transylvanian Sage flowers from summer to autumn with a brilliant showing of blue flowers. The abundant flowers open on strong, upright, well branched stems above the low growing, large mid green leaves. A rare offering of a hardy bloomer.
Transylvanian Sage is at home in garden beds or borders, under roses or on embankments. Plant in a sunny spot with well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist in active growth.
You can dead head regularly to extend the flowering season, or give the flowers a prune late summer, as they begin to wane, add some fertiliser and you should have a second flush in no time. Cut back to the ground once flowering has finished in winter and add some mulch, this will allow the fresh spring/summer growth to shine through.
