Use colorful salvia to add brilliance to containers and flower beds, especially in masses. Plants have dark green foliage and full flower spikes all season. Annual salvia starts out a few inches tall, adding height as the season progresses. Plants grow tallest in regions where the warm season is long. Very attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
Salvia prefers fertile, well-drained soil that stays evenly moist. Plant in spring after all danger of frost is past. Feed with a timed-release fertilizer when you first plant. To keep the plants fresh all summer, pinch off the old bloom spikes toward the end of the season. This annual salvia is not the same as perennial salvia, which includes many red, blue, and purple species.
