About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Salvia reptans:
The color appears as intense and blue in person as it does on my computer screen. Absolutely gorgeous plant with nice contrast of line from more florid, flouncy specimens. After a bit of hand-watering when I first planted this in November, I never watered it again and it is thriving. I live in region 7.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Master Gardener
About two years ago I bought a Salvia Reptans from High Country Gardens. it came at the time requested and was in wonderful shape for planting.I planted it in a bed which already had several varieties of salvias. When it bloomed for me it certainly was a vibrant cobalt blue as described in the catalog. The needle like foliage is attractive through the spring and summer and is greatly enhanced by the flowers blooming in the fall. It's is wonderful to have a fall blooming salvia to extend the beauty of the spring bloomers. It has come through two exceptionally long cold winters with flying colors. An added attraction is that the visiting deer, of which I have way too many, give it a wide berth and so I get to enjoy it throughout it's life cycle without worrying about fencing or spraying.Since that time I have ordered several more so as to have a full and floriferous patch of blue to steal the autumn show.

About Me Getting Started
My growing conditions are harsh: high, dry winds; high heat; possible heavy snow; clay, rocky soil. Also have many browsers - deer, rabbit. This plant did very well in these conditions. The blue color is stunning.
Tips For Growing Salvia
Salvia (commonly referred to as ‘Sage’) represent a huge family of ornamental plants that attract a variety of pollinators to their nectar rich flowers. They are resistant to deer and rabbits.
Western Native Salvia: : It is from the Western US that we find our most beautiful native salvia species. For attracting hummingbirds, there are no finer flowers than the Western native sages. Typically, this group of Salvia prefer ‘lean’ (not very fertile), well drained soils. They will grow in dry clay conditions in arid climates but will rot out in clay soils where there is more than about 15 to 18” of precipitation annually.
Western sages include:
Old Wolrd Salvia: The Old World Salvia include some of the very best, most durable, longest-lived perennials. These salvia are an excellent choice for gardeners across most of the United States. ‘Old World’ Sages bloom primarily in shades of blue, pink and white. They are well adapted to cold climates and a wide range of soils including clay. The European Salvia are incredibly attractive to honey bees, many of our native bees and bumble bees as well as butterflies.
Old World varieties include:
