flaflwrgrl said:I have had this salvia twice. Once down in southeast FL in zone 10 and once here in north FL in zone 8. The one in zone 10 did well for me but it did get some shade during the day & I believe that was necessary with what the FL sun can do to plants. However, we moved before I even had the plant for a year so I really can't say long term how it performed there.
As to it's performance here in zone 8, it was not good. I got 2 plants and planted them in full sun & they did not survive the summer heat & sun. The area they were planted in does test a plants mettle and this did not pass the test. I keep hearing how tough it and all salvias are but as to the Black & Blue; it's not tough enough for here unless you baby it some. I am looking for plants that can really take what mother nature dishes out. The daylilys take it but the black & blue salvia couldn't hold up to it.
