Sallyfun™ Deep Ocean Salvia
Salvia farinacea 'Deep Ocean'
|Description||Abundant spikes of stunning violet-blue flowers rise above the aromatic foliage all summer long. A fantastic container feature for porch or patio that works just as beautifully in annual mixed borders. Wonderful for cutting. Tender perennial; treat as an annual where not hardy.|
|Watering||Allow soil to dry between waterings.|
|Blooms||Late Spring into Fall|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 15 to 24 in. tall, 12 to 22 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Accent|
|Design Ideas||For cooler regions, a great addition the "xeriscape" garden in where low-water-use is important. Plant singly or in groups for a strong effect.|
|Companion Plants||Coneflower (Echinacea); Switch Grass (Panicum); Tickseed (Coreopsis); Sedum (Sedum); Black-Eyed-Susan (Rudbeckia)|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil. After a flowering flush, clip lightly and apply a slow-release fertilizer to promote continued prolific bloom. Tolerates mild drought in a landscape; water potted plants regularly, when top 2 to 3 in. of soil is dry. Where hardy, cut back by one-third and fertilize in early spring.|
