Rebloom on zone 5 salvias

My salvias seem to be all done - that's Blue Hill and a few others like it. I've cut them back a bit. Can I get rebloom and do I need to fertilize? This is the first time I've had continuing success with salvias (2 yrs). My place has acid moist soil and only part sun/shade.

RE: Rebloom on zone 5 salvias

I had Blue Hill at our old house and it bloomed till frost. I have May Night and Marcus here. You should deadhead as needed. I just feed all my plants about once a month with spray feeder on the hose.

My Blue Hills would get huge and a little scraggly, so I also gave it a "hair cut" a couple times during the summer to keep them more ruly!!

Hope this helps.
