About This Plant
Partial sun or bright shade. An herbaceous perennial, typically freezing to the ground each winter. Salvia guaranitica is a big, clumping sage that spreads aggressively by the roots in shady areas; give it room and plan on some effort to contain it. Blue flowers appear throughout the warm season, attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. ‘Black-and-Blue’ is a popular cultivar.
Expect salvia guaranitica to spread, especially in shade. It can be cut back during winter when the above-ground foliage freezes.
