BLACK AND BLUE Salvia Sage Live Perennial Plant Unusual Sapphire Colored Flowers Attract Hummingbirds Starter Size 4 Inch Pot Emerald Tm


Saliva guarantitica or Black and Blue Salvia is an attractive, unusual, semi-tropical, flowering perennial that is very attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies. Other common names are Brazilian, Sapphire, or Anise Scented Sage.

Matures at about 3 to 4 feet tall, with soft, herbaceous stems that harden into a woody base as the plant ages, with soft, shiny, pointed, oval leaves with bluntly serrated edges in medium toned green. In mid-summer unusually bright colored sapphire blue, dual lipped tubules begin to emerge from dark, nearly black calyxes along tall, thin black stems, rising slightly above the main body of the plant.

This plants sets to rest the myth that hummingbirds prefer red blooms, as the nectar rich tubules of the Black and Blue Salvia are irresistable, a must have for a Wildlife Garden or a versatile, eye catching addition to any.

Uses include mass planting, hedges, mixed perennial or tiered beds, or growing as a potted plant. Performs best in light shade.
