12” x 12-15”, (seed propagated). A noteworthy sage with beautiful feathery foliage and a profusion of plume-like flower spikes made up of unusual upside-down, blue flowers in late spring, Salvia jurisicii ‘Blue’ is a superb addition to the hot, dry perennial border. Native to Eastern Europe, this wildflower Salvia is easily grown in any well-drained soil. In dry summer climates, irrigate occasionally; otherwise, it can go dormant like an Oriental Poppy. But not to worry if it goes to “sleep”; it will re-emerge without fail the next spring. Plant it with Hymenoxys scaposa for a dazzling show of blue and yellow.
