An unsung hero of any cutting patch! Salvia viridis ‘Oxford Blue’ flowers all summer and into autumn and is a proper trouper in a vase, looking good and very smug for ages while all around it is flopping and giving up. A great filler flower, not grown really for the flowers, which are quite small, but for the big flash bracts that here are a bright purple-blue. Adds a lovely spikiness into your arrangements.
Great for drying too.
Can be sown directly in April/May after frosts or undercover in March.
