Salvia ‘Pozo Blue’
at Digging Dog
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.
Salvia ‘Pozo Blue’
Hailed as one of the most drought tolerant plants in
the trade, this tough-as-nails evergreen Salvia can handle
a California summer without water, sandy or clay
soil in either coastal, mountainous or desert gardens,
and sports good looks to boot. Masses of sparkling
blue-violet flowers populate spaced ball-shaped clusters
atop a rounded, somewhat woody frame with aromatic
ashy green leaves.
A chance seedling of Salvia clevelandii
and Salvia leucophylla selected by Las Palitas Nursery owner Bert Wilson, ‘Pozo Blue’ makes a handsome addition to fresh or dried arrangements, as well as rocky banks
and dry borders, while attracting butterflies, California
Quail, hummingbirds, and plant enthusiasts. It can handle a California summer without water and sandy or clay soil in either coastal, mountainous or desert gardens.
Size: 5' 0" high x 5' 0" wide. 7/8
