|I've grown Henry Duelberg twice before and they didn't live through til the end of the season each time, pretty sure they got too much watering by me in their containers.|
I want to grow it again and make sure it grows til frost/freeze.
I can only get this salvia, as well as, most of the salvias I grow, through mail order and I get them at Flowers By The Sea.

|This one is particularly unhappy when it receives a lot of water. Recall it was discovered in an old, untended cemetery in Texas. Here is the story:|
Run dryish this is a great plant.

I know to keep it on the dryish side, but keep forgetting during our growing seasons when I'm hand watering the other salvias. I've other salvia farinacea plants that I grow in containers that do ok and bloom into fall.
I'm still determined to get 'Henry Duelberg' growing and blooming through the seasons (spring to fall). Hopefully, next year.

|Mine was beautiful this year; I got a plant in a trade and its blue was very intense. It was planted at the top of a slope with pretty good drainage and and compost added. I can't wait to see it bigger and prettier next year.|
