Salvia 'Blue By You' is a new introduction from the breeders at Ball Seed, the latest to continue mixing the genes of two indestructible European sages (Salvia nemorosa and Salvia pratensis). In this case, the cross was Salvia x sylvestris 'Mainacht' and Salvia pratensis 'Rose Rhapsody'. The 16" tall x 16" wide clumps are composed of fuzzy, tongue-shaped basal green leaves, and topped, starting in early spring, with stalks of dark blue purple flowers. After the first flowering is finished, cut the flower stalks to the ground and a new flush of flowers will emerge. Average to dry soils and a sunny location are best.
