Details
18-20" tall x 24-28" wide (cutting propagated). You'll enjoy ultra garden performance from this new hybrid Salvia selected by Lauren Springer Ogden and Scott Ogden. Discovered in their Ft. Collins garden, 'Ultra Violet' is a hummingbird initiated cross between blue flowered Salvia lycioides and rose-pink Salvia greggii. The dark green foliage and copious violet-pink flowers make this plant a standout in the xeriscape. For three years now, the plant has grown beautifully after surviving erratic USDA zone 5b (-10 to -15 ° F) winters. Blooming starts in late July and continues until October frost! Select a hot, full sun location with any lean-loam or clay-loam soil that is well drained. Its aromatic foliage is very rabbit and deer resistant. During fall garden clean-up, wait to cut back the plants until spring for improved cold hardiness. Combine it with Hymenoxys acaulis or various Oenothera for a pleasing, xeric combination. Zones 5b-9.
