Color Spires Crystal Blue Salvia gets its name from the unique light-blue flowers that resemble a mildly lavender sky. It's hard to find blue flowers, but this hybrid salvia (Salvia nemerosa) hits the mark. And that's not all—Salvia is the sage family. So the gray-green leaves of this pretty perennial have an earthy sage scent. That makes it perfect for containers placed near your entry or patio.

The fragrant leaves and stems of Color Spires Crystal Blue Salvia grow in a nice round clump nearly 20 inches high, and the flower stems rise from the center. The blue blooms should open in late spring or early summer. Like all salvias, its blossoms attract hummingbirds, bees and butterflies, but not deer or rabbits. This is a great plant to add to a natural landscape, maybe before a nice dark wall or rock to show off its flowers. But it also works well in containers or as a border plant in zones 3 through 8.

Color Spires Crystal Blue Salvia Care

Color Spires Crystal Blue Salvia can grow in nearly any soil that drains well. Plant your salvia in a spot that gets full sun and water it regularly until it is established. After that, you can cut back; the salvia is drought tolerant. But it will bloom and grow for you better with a little extra watering.

Your salvia shouldn't need fertilizing, but you can spread some organic compost around the plant each spring. You only need to trim off the flower stalks if you want to encourage it to bloom again.

Color Spires Crystal Blue Salvia Spacing

The stems and faded blooms are great for fresh or dried flower arrangements. When planting Color Spires Crystal Blue Salvia in a group or next to other plants, be sure to consider its mature size. Place your salvia at least 24 to 26 inches from the nearest plant.

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.

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.

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.
