Sensation White is a very impressive Salvia because of its long lasting bloom period. In 2016 it started blooming mid May, was still blooming in July, and after being cut back, even more blooms came.

It never has a dull as dishwater moment, which some white blossoms go through, when their blossoms age and turn brownish. Instead, the tiny individual blossoms fall out cleanly, when finished blooming, and new, fresh blossoms appear at the top.

There are also some good seedlings that have started up. Where Sensation White was planted near Daylily Joan Senior, a seedling can be seen in the bottom left of the first photo taken June 12. In the second photo, on July 3, the seedling is well established, and a new location will be found for it this spring.

@HemNorth Nora,

Thank you for sharing your experience. This sounds like a great salvia to grow. Good pics. Have you thought about submitting your seedling pic to the database?
