Salvia 'Van Remsen' is an amazing hummingbird favorite that makes a stunning 7' tall clump that doesn't run. That's right, great height and no running...ranks up there with "tastes great and less filling." Rich green leaves adorn this amazing giant that rockets skyward when grown in rich soil. The green stems are clothed in large 6" long x 5" wide, dark green leaves, then topped, starting in late May, with spikes of cobalt blue flowers...a stunning garden specimen and favorite of high-flying hummingbirds. Salvia 'Van Remsen', a probable hybrid of Salvia guaranitica 'Brazil' x Salvia guaranitica 'Costa Rica', was discovered in James Van Remsen's Louisiana garden and later named and distributed by the late salvia guru Rich Dufresne.
