Salvia Patens or Gentian Sage – 2 litre

Possibly the deepest and purest blue flowers in the world! Salvia Patens is commonly known as Gentian Sage. It is so elegant, with two-lipped flowers much larger than most salvia flowers.  The flowers are on tall spikes and last from summer through to autumn.  Like most salvia they do need a warm spot in the garden and appreciate a little drainage as they hate having wet bottoms.

Unusually, this is a seed grown salvia! I have heard a lady locally with a gravel garden having significant self sown seedlings…  It also flowers in its first year with all that blue beauty, of course our pollinating insects adore it as it is nectar rich & fragrant.
