Gardeners' Notes:

This plant was sold to me as a "black & blue salvia", but it became obvious that it was purple majesty when it bloomed. I can't say that I was disappointed. It is majestic.

In my Houston-area heat, the plant likes to be watered two or three times a day. If not it droops noticeably and the leaves wilt, but a little water and it perks right up. In full sun, mine has grown rapidly. In dapled light and full shade growth slows, but it still requires moist roots so air temperature seems important.

Plant blooms from Spring through Fall.

Nice annual plant, similar to Black & Blue in size, aromatic leaves, hummers love it, etc. Gets a little higher than B&B, 4+ ft. Late summer bloomer, but once it gets going, it blooms till frost.
