blue perennial salvia

ellenrr(7a)April 12, 2013

Hi, I had beautiful perennial blue salvia that I grew from seed, but lost my garden plot. I'd like to grow them again. I have no idea what I grew before.
Is there any that is most likely to bloom this year?
Also, can you recommend a seed company to buy from?

Which sage it is depends on your USDA Zone. Salvia superba is hardy in the colder zones. S. farinacea is hardier, some in zone 7, mostly 8, S. uliginosa is intermediate in hardiness. Other blue sages are harder to find, but some sources for those like S. azurea grandiflora exist.

Some sages like S. guaranitica set seed very sparingly, and these are often bought by nurseries and collectorc, and propagated vegetatively for distribution.
