The garden is ablaze with perennial salvias now, including several with blue or near blue flowers. Above is Salvia ‘Amistad’…a flowering machine that continues at the same pace all summer. Unlike Salvia guaranitca, Salvia ‘Amistad’ does not spread via rhizomes, although it does form a wide clump.
and here is Salvia guaranitica ‘Argentina Skies‘…a much lighter blue that does make a large patch due to its spreading nature. Both plants are a feast for the bees.
