blue salvia

20 Jun

This salvia comes back year after year, unlike its bright red cousin which, although technically a tender perennial, only grows for one season–at least in this zone. Salvia is part of the sage family, but the leaves certainly don’t smell like sage and I doubt it can be used in cooking. This one is being crowded out by the variegated euonymous on one side the the obedient plant on the other. Although the books say the plant doesn’t like to be transplanted, I might have to take the risk and move it to another bed with other blue salvias if I don’t want to lose it.
