Salvia microphylla 'Mesa Azure'
From dense spikes of dark colored calyxes emerge purple tubular flowers that are produced throughout much of the year on a compact dense and low growing plant with bright green quilted foliage. Mesa Azure Salvia's nectar rich flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and long tongued bees anytime this tidy plant is in bloom. If flowering slows down a light pruning and fertilizing will send back into production.
Mesa Azure Salvia will perform best in a well-drained sunny location and is moderately drought resistant once well-established. The compact habit and exceptional flower power of this little perennial Salvia should make it a great candidate for well-drained, low maintenance container plantings as well as in the garden and landscape.
