Description / Big Blue Salvia Seeds

Here it is—the wall of nonstop color you have wanted for your sunny to lightly shaded garden bed and containers. Featuring bigger, brighter blue blooms that repeat from midsummer through fall right up to frost, Big Blue Salvia is the must-have annual of the season.

There have been other interspecific sage varieties, but not from seed. Big Blue Salvia is the first, and boy, was it ever worth waiting for. These brilliant spikes of searing blue reach about 2 to 3 feet high, and the plant is nearly 2 feet wide. Find a big generous spot and let Big Blue Salvia transform it into a butterfly haven, or use this annual in your cut flower garden for continuous spires of color that hold up well in the vase.

Another wonderful feature of Big Blue Salvia, it doesn't need deadheading. So you can enjoy these fresh spikes for months without having to shear the old blooms back first. That's a huge boon for busy gardeners.

Big Blue Salvia combines two species—S. longispicata and S. farinacea. Both are native to Mexico, with S. farinacea (Mealycup Sage) also found in the southwestern US. Together, they are far more than the sum of their parts: they offer bigger blooms, richer color, faster repeat, and more vigorous growth. It's a marriage made in heaven.

And Big Blue Salvia can tolerate dappled or light shade, unlike many salvias, without losing its bloom strength or upright habit. Big Blue Salvia loves hot, dry conditions, so it's ideal for the xeriscapic garden. All of this, for the price of a packet of seeds. Thank you, Big Blue Salvia.

Review by Judy
I’ve had 100% germination success with these seeds for 2 years now, and my hummingbirds can’t stay away from them. Great plant!

Love this plant!
Review by Carey H
I bought a packet of seeds for the first time last year. Most of them germinated and grew quickly into the most beautiful tall plants that thrived in 7a heat. I liked it so well I bought 4 more packets of seeds this year!

Review by Beth
I love these. Consistent germination. Strong plants. They take some time to really get going and bloom but once they do they will bloom well into frost. They never fall over. They attract pollinators like crazy! Always covered in bees. They make a great backdrop.

Review by JC
Love this new salvia. It was absolutely beautiful until the frost came. Full of bees and butterfly’s all summer. My favorite new annual. Flowers were long and beautiful. Did not have to deadhead. It was a blooming machine. So little effort on my part.

Review by CCS
These plants are now 3-4 ft tall covered in dark purple/blue flowers and loaded with pollinators. I didn't expect them to be so tall and large, they make a great statement!&

I tried this salvia spring 2019. It is tall, tough, and beautiful. I have it in various locations, some with no water except rain. It's just as great in all places. Love it.

It's BIG
Review by MJ in Zone 5
I had perfect germination. The plants are BIG, much bigger than I thought and so be sure you are giving them plenty of space, They are tough. I had them on the western side of my house and it's inhospitable and they have thrived. They don't bloom as much as I thought they would and they don't have any honeybees on them. I have a bee hive about 50 yards from the plants and I have never seen a honeybee on them.
