Salvia 'Ultra Violet' is an exciting new woody sage from our friends Lauren Springer-Ogden and Scott Ogden, who adopted it after it appeared as a stray in their Ft. Collins, Colorado garden. Salvia 'Ultra Violet', a cross of Salvia lycioides and Salvia greggii, forms a compact 18" tall x 3' wide specimen adorned with an abundance of small purple flowers starting for us in mid-May. Salvia 'Ultra Violet' is both amazingly drought-tolerant and a favorite of visiting hummingbirds. Flowering of Salvia 'Ultra Violet' slows down in summer, but picks up again as the nights cool in fall. Well-drained soils are key to long term success.
