Planted this spring and seems to be flourishing. I like the soft form (not brittle stems like some other salvias.) Color is similar to that of Brazilian verbena (a pinkish purple). I also have the Mesa purple that is a darker more violet color.

Flower shape on Mesa Azure reminds me of salvia Hot Lips. The Mesa series includes Azure, Rose and Scarlet.
