HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, pressing into the surface of the soil since this plant needs light to germinate. For spring planting, mix Azure Blue Sage seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 30 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which usually takes 1-2 weeks.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. This plant grows very quickly and needs little care, preferring dry soil. Mature plants tolerate heat and drought well, as well as thriving in sandy or rocky soils. Cut back the growing stems to encourage bushier growth. This plant attracts bees and butterflies, and will self-seed unless cut back after flowering has finished.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: The flower spike will turn brown and dry while the seeds begin to form. Watch the plant carefully, since Azure Blue Sage seeds will soon blow away with the wind. Shake the ripe brown heads over a container to remove the seed. Store Salvia Azurea seeds in a cool, dry place.

Purchases of Salvia Blue &Scarlet

Was pleasantly surprised to find the order processed quickly and efficiently. When the native seeds arrived, they were packaged in a really beautiful and informative, gold foil, resealable packet. Well done and very convenient! These seeds are destined for the new pollinator garden at the Public Park in Stockton, NJ. Will send photos over the next year to mark their growth as they develop into beautiful flowers. Will be buying more from Everwilde as this garden provides a much-needed salvation for struggling pollinators arriving on the air currents above the Delaware River.

Photo is wrong, or description is

That's NOT Salvia azurea. Azurea has loose panicles of broad-lipped sky blue flowers and sparse willowy leaves. Plant in photo is probably S. nemerosa.
So.. which seed is being offered here? The one in the photo, or the one it's being called?

Thanks for your input. The seeds that we are offering are Salvia azurea, we will have someone look into this photo mis-match issue.

Love the packaging. I won't plant these until late-fall/early-winter and then won't know until next year.

Salvia azurea seeds

The seeds arrived very promptly. This is the only perennial salvia in our zone 5 garden that attracts hummingbirds. We are looking forward to getting this plant established in our yard again.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

Reflecting the clear blue sky, these lovely blossoms illuminate the prairie landscape of the southern plains. This versatile plant has had medicinal, ornamental, and culinary uses for generations. This perennial needs a lot of heat to complete its life cycle, so it blooms late in northern regions.
A versatile plant, native sage has had medicinal, ornamental, and culinary uses for generations. The first botanical classification of this family of plants can be found in 19th century British botanist George Bentham's influential work Genera Plantarum. The genus name "Salvia" comes from the Latin "salvere" meaning "to heal," referring to the plant's medicinal benefits.
