One of my favorite salvias, even though I don't find it for purchase a lot of years, as plants anymore. Beautiful photo! Lovey dubby

Another beauty, Fleur - unlike Debra and Marilyn I don't have this salvia, but will definitely be hunting for it now! Lovey dubby I tip my hat to you.

Mika,

I don't have it now and didn't for the 2017 season. It's not hardy in my zone 6a, so whenever I grow it, it dies with the frost/freeze each year. I thought it reseeded one year, but now I don't remember for sure.

Here's the database link for it: Mealycup Sage (Salvia farinacea 'Victoria Blue')

Very nice banner Fleur!

What a riot... I was thinking, "Wow that's a lovely banner, I wonder who contributed that." Lo and behold it's the queen, of course.
Nice, nice. I tip my hat to you.

Fleur,

Victoria Blue gets to only 2 feet and looking at your photo, it looks a lot taller than that. How tall was your VB in the photo? Confused
