Salvia Black and Bloom, Anise Scented Sage

Intense sapphire-blue flowers with deep black bracts and stems make Black and Bloom Salvia a must-have for any summer garden. Black and Bloom Salvia’s flowers are bigger and more abundant that the old-fashioned Black and Blue Salvia. This large annual, growing 3-4′ tall and wide in one season looks great in the back of a sunny garden or the center of a mixed container. As the summer heats up Black and Bloom blooms better and better. Drought tolerant, deer and rabbit resistant, and a hummingbird magnet. A true gem!
