(S. sp. 72-90) We are constantly on the lookout for new, distinctive, garden-worthy sages, and with Salvia 'Blue Chiquita', we have a gem. This late-season ornamental sage (probably S. longispicata) was discovered by Yucca Do on an expedition in 1997. The heavily quilted, dark green leaves, each backed with silvery white, form a 2' tall x 3' wide, compact mound of foliage. From late September until frost, the clumps are topped with rigid 20" spires of blue flowers (RHS 89C). For those gardening in the later frosting zones, or those growing large containers in the arctic, S. 'Blue Chiquita' is a real winner!
