Salvia uliginosa 'Ballon Azul'
A lower growing version of the gorgeous blue bog sage, this one only reaches around 80-100cm so is much easier to place in the garden and doesn't flop as much as the taller version. It still seems to creep around a little bit, but perhaps not quite as vigorous as the original species. Whatever its faults, it makes up for it with a summer-long display of blue flowers which are an absolute magnet for all sorts of bees and butterflies. The monarchs on this last summer were amazing to watch! Full sun is best. 9cm pot.
