The Blue Victoria Salvia, 'Salvia farinacea, is native to Texas and New Mexico. Lovely spikes of deep purple-blue flowers cover this dwarf variety. The 1/2 inch long flowers are clustered densely along upright stems which rise above the foliage. Blue Victoria Salvias bloom summer through fall. Place this flower in full sun and in average well drained garden soil for best results.Blue Victoria Salvias require moisture but not too much. The ideal soil condition is slightly dry. Do not over water or over fertilize. Over fertilization causes more vegetative growth and less flowers. More flowers will be produced if the plants are deadheaded often. Plant 2 weeks after the last frost where the Blue Victoria is an annual.
Scientific Name : Salvia farinacea
