    More About Black And Blue Salvia...

    If you are looking for a plant that is sure to have hummingbirds flocking to it look no further - Black & Blue Salvia should be at the top of your list!

    Salvia Black and Blue, also known as Blue Anise Sage, is a large-growing perennial plant that reaches about 4 to 5 feet in height with an equal width. Perfectly designed for hummingbirds, the tubular deep cobalt-blue flowers, which look like an opened pelicans beak, are produced in abundance from late spring through early winter.  This selection of the hardy salvia differs from the norm in that the calyx (the little cup that holds the open flower) is black instead of the usual green! Hence the cultivar name 'Black & Blue'.

    A hardy perennial in USDA Zones 7-10A,  Black & Blue Salvia can be grown in garden beds or containers. Above Zone 7 it will be an annual. It prefers a moist, well-drained soil and likes full sun to partial shade. Flowering will be heavier with more sun. It is more drought tolerant when growing in the ground. Plants in containers will require more attention to watering during the hot summer months.

    If you are looking for other great hummingbird plants check out Madame Galen Trumpet Vine (Campsis), Hummingbird Plant (Dicliptera suberecta), and Hot Lips Saliva.

    Black & Blue Salvia is a must-have plant in hummingbird and butterfly gardens and container plantings!
