Salvia farinacea (Salvia 'Victoria Blue')
Mealycup sage ‘Victoria Blue’ is a compact, densely-branched perennial with masses of deep blue flowers from late spring through fall. If trimmed periodically, it comes back refreshed, thicker and re-blooms. It is drought, heat, and sun tolerant, and about the only thing it cannot handle is wet feet. The blooms attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
‘Victoria Blue’ sage makes an excellent plant for perennial gardens and mass planting.
