What Houzz contributors are saying:

Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Great Design Plant: Blue Sage
Distinguishing traits. Blue sage is a true blue flower, which is rare in the plant world, especially for a noncultivar. It grows well in full sun and medium to dry soils, never putting up a fuss. It very slowly spreads to form a clump 1 to 2 feet in diameter with many flower stalks. Salvia azurea 'Nekan' is a hardy, bigger-bloomed sport found in northern Lincoln, Nebraska.

3. TasteBlue sage (Salvia azurea) is drought tolerant and blooms in early fall. It’s easy to sow, too, if you like free plants. Since taste and smell are so closely related, I’m using this sage to bridge garnishing food and making your hands smell better — either way, it’s a winner that also attracts hummingbirds.
