|A little behind the 'Day' but here is our African Blue Sage. It has put on good growth but another year will be needed to fully assess this one. I hope that it will put out more bloom next season when it fills out it's growth potential. It seems very well suited to our well draining, fine grained, sandy loam (Columbia Series) soil and our Mediterranean climate. It's breezing through our scorching hot and dry summer temps along with Brown Salvia (Salvia africana-lutes) just behind it and in the foreground a bit of Greek Sage (Salvia fruticose). The flowering has been ongoing but sparse since late May. The bracts should provide some additional long lasting color. |
