(Blue Sage) A fragrant thriller for your containers and landscape, PLAYIN' THE BLUES® Salvia. Standing 24-48 inches tall, the purplish blue spikes of PLAYIN' THE BLUES® create a great focal point for mixed containers. This continuous blooming Salvia is sterile which means more flowers for you. Planted in full sun you may enjoy the flutter of butterflies and hummingbirds checking out the blooms. Drought tolerant and deer resistant are just two of the great attributes PLAYIN' THE BLUES® brings. We recommend regular watering and fertilizing every 1-2 weeks for continuous growth and blooms. You may find that it is taller than you want, then we recommend giving it a trim which will in turn create branching and even more blooms! You may notice that PLAYIN' THE BLUES® attracts bees, keep that in mind when planting. We encourage plants that will support our bee population.
