Salvia Mystic Spires
This impressive salvia offers excellent Summer garden performance, with longer flower hold for a brighter blue flower color in the garden. A premium variety that can command a higher price point. The sturdy, dark green-leafed plants are naturally compact, well-branched and very free-flowering. Heat-hardy plants are great for late Spring/Summer programs. This dwarf ‘Indigo Spires’ type is well-suited to landscapes and mixed containers.
