Salvias offer natural flower spikes in summer sun, but Color Spires Azure Snow Salvia rises above the others with its showy bicolor flowers. That's right: this pretty little Salvia hybrid gives you deep violet-blue and white flowers on each generous stem. Salvias are perennial plants in the sage family. That means Azure Snow's two-colored, sweet-smelling flowers rise from fragrant green leaves.
Color Spires Azure Snow Salvia grows in a nice round clump nearly 20 inches high and wide. The bicolored blooms open in late spring or early summer and stick around. Trim the faded flower stalks if you want to encourage your Azure Snow to bloom again and use them in fresh or dried flower arrangements. Bees swarm around the blossoms in the plant's sunny location. Butterflies and hummingbirds also will stop by.
Color Spires Azure Snow Salvia Care
Plant several Azure Snow salvias in a drift pattern, such as along steps or terraces, or in sets of threes in native and rock gardens. Your Color Spires Azure Snow Salvia is hardy in zone 3 through 8 and can grow in nearly any type of soil. Watering regularly will ensure those beautiful blooms keep coming, but the plant can handle some drought once it matures.
Salvias usually need no fertilizing but can benefit from yearly additions of organic compost in the soil around the plant each spring.
Color Spires Azure Snow Salvia Spacing
When you plant Color Spires Azure Snow Salvia next to other plants, in a container, or even before a large rock or wall, be sure to consider its mature size. Give your salvia at least 18 to 20 inches of space from the nearest plant.
