Salvia 'Mystic Spires Blue' (Sage)

Sage 'Mystic Spires Blue', Salvia 'Balsalmisp' PP18054, Salvia longispicata x farinacea,


Everblooming from early summer to frost, Salvia 'Mystic Spires Blue' is an excellent compact selection from the highly popular Salvia 'Indigo Spires'. Well-branched and very free-flowering, 'Mystic Spires Blue' produces masses of sturdy, purple-blue flower stalks that are of great aesthetic appeal in beds, borders or containers and attract scores of butterflies, hummingbirds and beneficial insects.

  • Easy to grow, fairly pest and disease free and requiring low care, this semi-evergreen perennial is also heat tolerant and deer resistant. In short, the perfect perennial!
  • Reliable, this erect herbaceous perennial forms a mound of shiny, deep green leaves less than 12 in. high (30 cm), topped by 12-18 in. (30-45 cm) long flowering stems of dark purple-blue flowers in violet-purple calyces. Grows up to 24-30 in. high and wide (60-75 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun or light shade, in moist, well-drained soils. Water and fertilize regularly to keep it flowering. Some drought tolerance but looks best with regular watering.
  • Pair it with hot colored annuals or perennials to cool down their saturated colors or use it as a dramatic, misty blue background behind low-growing orange or yellow flowers such as Marigolds or Zinnias. It also looks incredible when planted in mass or used as an upright accent plant in containers.
