Violet Salvia

*We no longer grow this item, but feel free to peruse the information.

Evolution Deep Violet Salvia has flower spikes that are crowded like Victoria Blue which makes it another great addition to the garden.  The foliage is a deep green that contrasts well with the purple-blue of the blooms.  It is a more compact variety than some of the others and has a better branching habit.   The blooms tend to hold their color longer than other varieties as well.  Carry the color into the house with you and it will make a great addition to your cut flower arrangement.  Along with the color selection, Salvia’s outstanding heat and drought tolerance just add to this plant’s landscape allure. Salvia will bloom until first frost in autumn.
