Salvia nemorosa ‘Blue By You’, commonly known as Meadow Sage, is an easy-to-care-for productive workhorse in your garden. It features intense, deep violet-blue flowers throughout the growing season. Plants will form a bushy clump of sage-green leaves with a mounding habit, reaching 20-22 inches tall and wide. When the long, deep-purple flower spikes are spent, give it a trim and it will eagerly bloom for you again and again!

Blue By You Salvia has exceptional winter hardiness and will grow in zones 5 - 9 and down to -30 degrees F. It’s deer and rabbit resistant, frost and heat tolerant, and attractive to hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies. Blue By You makes an excellent deep-purple accent in cut-flower arrangements. 

Blue By You Salvia Care

Plant this salvia in a full-sun area in your landscape. Blue By You tolerates a range of soil pH and soil types; however, it isn’t so fond of wet feet, so keep it in a drier location and it will thrive. Clip off spent flowers to encourage another flush of blooms. 

Use a bloom-boosting fertilizer once a month starting in early summer and continue through the growing season to encourage flowering. Clumps can be easily divided in early spring every few years. This salvia grows well in pots due to its compact size and eventually can be transferred to the landscape where it has plenty of space to grow. 

Blue By You Salvia Spacing

To create a striking display of drifts or groupings, plant these salvias 20-24” apart. Blue By You has great color, texture, and structure, so it can be used in patio containers, or repeated in mass plantings to create a colorful edging or border. This cultivar has strong stems and a bold architectural shape that complements many styles of gardens.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
