My all time favourite salvia. It's sky blue flowers on long ,tall stems (up to 2m) are beautiful swaying in the breeze. It has been said to be potentially invasive in moist areas, but less so in dryer conditions.

*Herbaceous perennial

*2m h x spreading clump

*Full sun to light part shade

*Medium water needs

*Well drained to boggy soils, can be invasive in moist spots

*Frost tolerant
