Black & Blue Salvia
I did not go looking for another Salvia last Saturday (I needed a few more petunias for one of the borders), but when I saw a gorgeous display of Black & Blue Salvias, I had to have one; this makes the ninth Salvia/Sage variety in my garden. It's in the foreground in this photograph, not yet fully in blooom, and it is a bit overwhelmed by the chocolate Hollyhock right behind it, but it is a very attractive plant, looks strong and healthy, and I'm counting on it to be a focal point in my garden for years to come. Oh, yeah, the petunias -- I got them also; pictures to follow!
