Black and Blue...How tall will it grow in Zone 5B?
I went to Lowe's today to look for a new sander and to my wonderful surprise I found black and blue salvia's. I picked up three, should have got more!!!!! What a great surprise to find these here in Central IL :) I am so happy. They are now may 7-10" tall and blooming.
I was wondering if any of you around my zone grow these. I heard that they can handle partial shade, which is what they will get in my 19' long x 8 1/2 deep bed. They will receive some afternoon/evening sun and some dappled sun intermetently (sp) in the afternoon and evening also.
How tall and wide are they expected to grow?? I need to know where to place them in the bed.
Also any tips on overwintering, fertilizing, when to plant in the spring would also be appreciated.
These things are even more beautiful in person than in the pictures.
Oh, one more question, can I grow them in a large whiskey barrel?
Thanks everyone, can't wait to get them planted.
