Blue Hill Salvia Plants produces true-blue flowers that bloom on spikes for an extended period throughout summer. Coarse, green leaves add texture to any garden and hold up well to heat and drought. A great plant for borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens, cutting gardens, xeriscape, pollinator gardens, butterfly gardens, and hummingbird gardens. Wood sage prefers full sun locations with moist, well-drained soil, but will tolerate dry, poor ones. Once it is established it is very drought tolerant. Deer and rabbits tend to skip over it while browsing.

Blue Hill Salvia Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Trimming back the plant after the initial flowering is over will bring out a second flush that will last into the fall. Plants can be cut back to the ground after the first hard frost. Spring is a good time to apply fertilizer for the season.
