Growing Black and Bloom Sage

Salvias need close to full sun, and will grow near the coast in exposed locations, however, this variety's long flower stalks look better in a sheltered site. They are fully hardy, although their flowering season will be shortened somewhat in cold and windy places. They are happy on chalk, and like a light, well-drained but moist soil enriched with humus that doesn't remain wet in winter, so heavy clay is not good. They are perfect for a Mediterranean or gravel garden, and are great in large containers. Established plants are drought resistant, but still want fairly consistent moisture in dry summer periods to flower really well.
They are perfect for a Mediterranean or gravel garden, and are great in large containers.

Deadhead promptly to get the most from the flowering season. Leave the withered foliage on the plants overwinter for protection, and trim them after the last spring frost, right down to new growth.

Mulch lightly every year or two, ideally after a heavy spring rain when the soil has warmed up. Salvias don't need much fertility, so a little help goes a long way.

In Your Garden Design

Would work in any traditional border but would look particularly ravishing in a blue and pink herbaceous scheme. Plant alongside Aster Anita Webb and or Aster Harrington’s Pink and Dahlias Wine Eyed Jill and the Wizard of Oz.
