Salvia 'Blue Hill' Meadow Sage



A reliable and long-lived Meadow Sage, Salvia 'Blue Hill' sports spikes of true blue flowers over a long period from late spring to to early fall.

The fragrant foliage of Salvia 'Blue Hill' Meadow Sage repels deer. Pollinators, on the other hand, flock to it. Cut the plant back to encourage new center growth and a stronger rebloom. Moist, well-drained soil is best.

While Salvia or Meadow Sage in general seem to favor cooler climates, 'Blue Hill' has proven to be one of the best blues for the heat and humidity in the Southeast.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
