Blue Sky In The Summer Garden

Salvia ‘Blue Sky’

‘Blue Sky’ Salvia is a sometimes favorite of mine.

I brought along this perennial from my previous garden and here, as there, I sometimes grow tired of it. I decide it is too unruly, too spready, and vow to tug it all up from the roots.

Today I rather like it.

Salvia ‘Blue Sky’ and ‘Blue Point’ Juniper

      The unusual shade of blue is probably what compels me to let the salvia stay. It’s hard to take a picture this summer without including a bee. There seem to be more than usual and I suppose that’s good.

      I have taken numerous photographs of this salvia where the blue does not show up accurately, but this time I was lucky enough to capture it.

    I like the color a lot, but the plant does look rangy. If I had, I would probably plant in out in the back field.

      Yes, that might be a good place. Maybe I should hard prune it. The foliage probably became ruined when the weather was so dry. The hummingbirds like the flowers.

        I had lots of hummingbirds in the spring, but they seem to have disappeared. That has never happened before.

      Hi Malc. Yes, that is a great color and you must be right: Salvia uliginosa (Bog sage). Just looked it up in Wikipedia using your suggestion and description and images match. When I first bought it I wasn’t keeping up with names, so I appreciate knowing it now. Thanks.
