The author of 'Annuals for Connoisseurs' calls Salvia horminium one of the most garden-worthy plants of the sage family. This annual Salvia is vigorous, quick growing, nicely branching, and tops out at about 2' tall and 1' wide. Vivid 1" dark blue bracts grouped in threes are clearly veined and these "flowers" last all summer. They make great cut flowers fresh and especially dried as they hold their vivid color. Reseeds!
