Big Blue Salvia is really big, blue and gorgeous

Last year, Big Blue impressed us in factory testing. This year, when we were able to get it, we can say that it is indeed a great big blue, and provides all the spikes you could want to create excitement in the garden. Botanically, Big Blue is a cross of Salvia Farinacea longispicata. If you're a sage connoisseur, you'll recognize this as similar to the indigo sagebrush that was discovered at the Huntington Botanical Garden in 1962.

Big Blue is different. It is produced from seed, which means great value for garden shoppers. They are also different in that they are powerful but controllable, unlike the Indigo Towers. It will reach 24 to 36 inches tall and 18 to 20 inches wide, and will bring in pollinators. In a University of Georgia experiment where dozens of sage plants were grown, this was the only seed variety, while the others were propagated vegetatively. Big Blue won without a doubt. Pan American Seed seems to have done the impossible with Big Blue and you will love it.
