BLUE SAGE Salvia farinacea
Salvia farinacea, the mealycup sage, or mealy sage, is a herbaceous perennial native to Mexico and parts of the United States including Texas and Oklahoma. Violet-blue spikes rest on a compact plant of typically narrow salvia-like leaves; however, the shiny leaves are what set this species apart from most other Salvia, which bear velvety leaves.
Plant in full or partial sun. Plants will grow to 18 inches or more with good soil and will attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The plant is hardy to USDA hardiness zones 8–10. This sage is widely used as an ornamental plant.
Type: Hardy perennial
Hardiness zones: 8-10
Safe: Considered safe, non-toxic to children and people! This is our research, though we still suggest you confirm this yourself
Seeds per pack: 30
Germination: These plants should be fairly easy to germinate! Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and flatten the surface. Place at room temperature, and keep moist until germination. Once seedlings emerge, place the pot in a sunny place, or under bright grow lights until they are large enough to be transplanted outdoors.
