Also known as Azure sage, Sky Blue Sage or Pitcher Sage.

Blue Sage is a clump-forming perennial sporting azure blue flowers from mid-summer to fall. It is drought-tolerant once established and it may only need watering in an extended drought. It needs good drainage. It typically grows 2-5 ft tall, but can be cut back to half its size in mid –summer to control size and re-invigorate the plant to become bushier with more blooms. It tolerates a range of soil types, including poor soil, but it does not do well in heavy clay.

Blue Sage fits perfectly in a cottage or meadow garden, rock garden, planted en masse or as a focal point. It pairs well with Maximilian Sunflower, various red-flowering sages as well as Shrubby Boneset and ornamental grasses, such as Gulf Muhly, Lindheimer Muhly or Mexican Feather Grass.
