Description


Salvia ulignosa African Sky is an unusual member of the Salvia family, producing large, pale blue, open-mouthed blooms atop upright, bright green, scented foliage from early summer to late autumn. The clear blue colour prompts thoughts of hot, cloudless, summer skies. A wonderful plant to place near a path or seat where the sweet, sage-like aroma will be released when the foliage is disturbed. Much loved by bees, Salvia African Sky is incredibly floriferous and happy in either borders or containers. The word Salvia is derived from the Latin 'salvere' meaning 'to save' as it has been used medicinally for centuries. Salvia African Sky prefers to be grown in well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Reading a height of 60-80cm (24-32'), and spreading to 60cm (24'), it is a hardy perennial that can be grown outside in well-drained soil all year round, with extra winter protection only required during the very harshest of weather. During milder winters it may keep its foliage.
