Newbie - will my Salvia rebloom?

silvalion(7 - Long Island)June 28, 2014

Sorrry if this is an elementary question but I bought this salvia plant which I planted about a month ago (late May). Watered it well and consistently, it was a bright beautiful purple for a while and now it's died back. Will it rebloom on its own? Do I deadhead or shear to rebloom? And if so how soon will it rebloom?

I see the same plant in my neighborhood and they are still blooming. I was hoping to have blooms all summer.

You need to deadhead it. That means to cut the died stems back with pruners.

There are a few that only bloom once or for a season, but most will keep blooming as long as you dead-head as mauve girl mentioned.

This is my least favorite plant to deadhead... but it's so worth it!
