Common Name

SALVIA uliginosa

Described by Michael Loftus as ‘a plant to restore your faith in the meaning of the word blue……plant it and bid adieu to November melancholy’. Ethereal tall spires of intense sky blue flowers from July – Nov. Ht 140cm. Sp 60cm. Full sun. Moist yet well drained soil. Like many Salvias that are native to America the bog sage likes moisture in the summer but better drainage in the winter, especially in our British climate. Easy to strike from cuttings. A plant no garden should be without.
