This showy Anise-scented Sage produces long spires of large, deep blue flowers from mid-summer to frost. It forms a tall bush up to 5 feet tall by 2 feet wide that is great for the back of the border. It is drought tolerant because of its unusual, moisture-conserving rhizomes. Plant height can be reduced by cutting back stems in late spring. Plants grown in protected locations with winter mulch may survive mild winters in USDA Zones 6-7. Salvias are some of the showiest plants for containers, annual borders, and mixed borders. The flowers are made up of two lips: the upper one forms a hood over whiskery stamens and the lower lip, which itself is wide and toothed. Butterflies and hummingbirds love them.
