Salvia guaranitica Argentine Skies * Anise Scented Sage

Salvia guaranitica Argentine Skys is a weaker growing sage than the other Salvia guaranitica cultivars that I have grown. It is the blue flower color makes Salvia guaranitica Argentine Skies worth all of the trouble though. It is a beautiful sky blue and usually in bloom. Salvia Argentine Skies spreads slowly by underground runners. The plant gets 2.5 to 3 feet tall. Salvia guaranitica Argentine Skies is susceptible to frost and will die back to the ground in the mid 20°s F. The plants were burnt to the ground by frost and came back with great vigor in the early spring. I was ecstatic. Now I cut them back to the ground in warmer climes as well. Salvia Argentine Skies responds well and the bugs and disease problems are significantly reduced.
