The branching stems of Salvia uliginosa African Sky produce beautifully defined, open mouthed flowers of a staggering azure blue. This colour alone justifies this salvia a place in a sunny, protected border or in a carefully positioned container on a warm terrace.

But there is more to this salvia. The firm, woody base of this bushy deciduous perennial produces tall, branching stems that are valuable for their height and elegance as well as for their aromatic leaves. In addition, S. uliginosa African Sky is highly attractive to native pollinators (not African bees though…).
