Marine Blue Sage
The deepest blue flowers on any sage we’ve tried growing here, Marine Blue Sage is a very easy to grow, drought tolerant flowering sub-shrub that’s perfect for the sunny border. Flowers emerge in late summer and last for a long time and are frequently visited by bees and hummingbirds. The dusty grey foliage contrasts perfectly with the deep marine blue flowers.
