Gardeners' Notes:

This plant is a champion when it comes to difficult growing conditions! It's in the parking strip next to the street in full sun, and it's handled a very xeric watering regime in 110+ degree summers, it's handled 40+ inches of rain on a heavy clay soil, and it's been down to 10 degrees. All of this, and it hasn't even blinked. Plus, the leaves are good for cooking!

The plant is tough as California native Salvias go, which is to say none too tough. In central and East Texas most of them rot out in our heat and humidity. Pozo Blue grew, flowered then almost died from an El Nino induced wet Spring, Summer and Autumn (~43 inches). It took most of this Winter to recover and seems as if it will bloom again this year. It is notably resistant to rooting from cutting unlike many Salvias. It requires warm soil and a sandy rooting medium.
