Salvia 'Blue By You' is a blue flowering form of salvia that flowers from June until late September.
As a reliable, hardy plant, Salvia will flower for years to come in the garden, increasing in size each year.
Once established, it is drought tolerant in the garden but will need watering during periods of prolonged heat, especially if planted in a container.
Plant this Salvia with yellow-flowering perennials to showcase the vibrance of the blue blooms.
Ideal planting companions: Rudbeckia fulgida var. deamii, Crocosmia 'George Davison', Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer.'
This salvia will look stunning in a decorative container or the middle of a mixed planted border in the garden.
This Salvia was created by crossing Salvia x sylvestris 'Mainacht' and Salvia pratensis 'Rose Rhapsody'.
An easy-going garden plant that rewards you with a long season of bright blue flowers all summer long.
If you are planting a Salvia in the garden, lightly fork over it to loosen the soil. Add in organic matter by digging in some Peat-free compost. Once the soil is mixed, dig a small hole with a spade and add a generous handful of Mycorrhizal fungi to the bottom of the planting hole. Place the Salvia plant and back-fill with soil. Make sure you have not buried the plant lower in the ground than in the pot. After planting, firm the soil around the plant, so the plant's roots are in touch with the garden soil. After planting, water thoroughly and make sure the soil is moist but not too wet for the first two weeks.
Summer: Deadhead throughout summer to ensure a continuous season of blooms. Water daily during periods of prolonged heat until established
Autumn: Cutback to ground level in late autumn, and this perennial plant will reappear next spring
