Tidal Pool Salvia is an improved variety with calming blue flowers blooming from late spring to fall nonstop. The compact form and dense branching habit make it a great Salvia for the front of a garden border or container plantings. Salvia is a strong pollinator attractor and a food source for hummingbirds and butterflies. Tidal Pool is heavily scented and should be placed near pathways or patios to be enjoyed all season long.
Salvia is a very deer- and disease-resistant plant. Slugs and snails aren't even a bother for the pointed oval foliage. The flower spikes make lovely fresh-cut flowers and are easily dried for wintertime wreaths and displays. Tidal Pool Salvia has a naturally branching habit requiring little pruning or pinching, making this perennial low maintenance and attractive.
Tidal Pool Salvia Care
Plant Tidal Pool in a full to partial sun position that has well-draining soil. Soil texture can be anything from heavy clay to sandy as long as the drainage is good. Salvia is a drought-tolerant plant and excellent for water-wise planting schemes, although blooming will be more profuse when it is watered regularly. Fertilize Tidal Pool in early spring with a granular, slow-release formulation for flowering plants. The ratio of NPK should approach 1-4-2.
Deadheading will keep Tidal Pool looking tidy and encourage more flower spikes through the summer. Cut back flowering stems to a set of leaves. The whole plant can be cut back by half in midsummer if it has stopped blooming. This rejuvenation pruning will spark fresh new growth and a second flush of blooms for late summer and fall. Late fall or early spring is a perfect time for cleaning up the previous season’s top growth. At the same time, mulch with 2-3 inches of organic compost, shredded leaves, or arborist chips to help the soil retain moisture.
Tidal Pool Salvia Spacing
The mature height for Tidal Pool Salvia is 18-20 inches with a spread of 20-22 inches. Space plants 18 inches apart on the center to provide adequate air circulation.
