S. Gauranitica Black & Blue bloom in the Northeast

16 years ago

one of my S. Black & Blues has sent up a large flower

spike with two buds getting ready to open up. I was just hoping to keep it alive until I can put it back out in the spring. What a wonderful pick-me-up this is especially since our temp.right now is 4 degrees F. (about -15 C.)

and about 12 inches of snow on the ground. Since it is starting to bloom and put on some new growth, should I start watering with a weak solution of fertilizer or continue with plain water until spring arrives? This is the first time overwintering a salvia inside the house.
