Bumblesky: Salvia nemorosa - 1GAL Pot
Salvia nemorosa 'Bumblesky' is a compact perennial with lavender-blue flowers and aromatic gray-green foliage. It is a favorite of bees and butterflies.
Caring for Salvia, also known as sage, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Salvia plants thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. Plant them in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Water the plants deeply and infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. Salvia is relatively drought-tolerant once established. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Deadhead spent flowers to promote continuous blooming and remove any yellow or damaged leaves. Prune the plants in early spring to maintain their shape and remove any dead or leggy growth. Salvia is generally resistant to pests and diseases but monitor for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your Salvia will provide you with colorful, long-lasting blooms and attract pollinators to your garden.
