Thought in ancient times to perpetuate good health, an Arab proverb asks, “How shall a man die with sage in his garden?” Our Salvias are diverse perennials, shrubs or subshrubs. Many of them hail from the Mediterranean, Mexico and South America.
Drought tolerant, reliable once established, and generally pest and disease free, they combine an array of flowers and aromatic foliage in many different sizes, shapes, and hues.
Uliginosa means "of the marshes", in this case those
between the forests of southern Brazil and Argentina's
fertile pampas. Eye-catching white flecked azure blue
flowers soar atop slender branching stems lined with
narrow lance-shaped green leaves. A quick-to-establish
colonizing perennial, Bog Sage presents an airy, strong
and erect habit that doesn't need staking and flourishes
in moist niches along streams or ponds and in ordinary
garden conditions, even tolerating heavy or dry soil.
For a spectacular effect, plant it alongside Anemone
Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 15" & spreading; hardy to zone 6.
