The Q&A Archives: may night salvia

Question: I bought several may night salia this year, but have not bee able to get any blooms on them. I pinched the dead growth, but still no luck. Do you have any suggestions.

Answer: May Night Salvia grows best in full sunshine, in lean soil. Too much nitrogen fertlizer can keep them from blooming. They like heat and should bloom well through June. I wonder if your new plants are taking their time adjusting to your garden? As soon as the roots become well established they should grow and bloom for you. Just be a little more patient and I'm sure you'll be rewarded with their awesome spikes of flowers!
