Salvia greggii
‘Mes Azur’

This lovely salvia's calling card is its exquisitely beautiful, lavender-colored flowers. First forming a modest-sized shrub 18-24” tall and wide, come late spring it sprouts an endless array of one inch, two-lipped flowers. Blooming continues well into the fall, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds alike. Half inch, bright green leaves are oval, textured and fragrant. Though this variety of sage is lovely enough to feature in a container, it will blend in nicely with sun-loving perennials such as Penstemon, Yarrow or Agastache. Semi-evergreen, it will benefit from some protective mulch as winter approaches. Its fragrant leaves will discourage deer but not beneficial insects. Use wherever you want a splash of sublime color and encourage continued blooming with 0-10-10 organic bloom fertilizer. Trim to shape in winter. Drought tolerant and sturdy.
