I'm guessing it is Yucca-Do's Blue Chiquita. I say this because mine always fuss in the heat and the flowers almost never really form for me. The calyxes seem to shrivel and fall as fast as they appear on my spikes.

It's one reason I like to share Salvias. I know I can't always do them all to perfection, and someone else is better off propagating them. I continue to try, because nurseries do phase them out. Then I need to find a few other places willing to try them.
