Salvia chamaedryoides ‘Marine Blue’ (Marine Blue Germander Sage)

This attractive perennial Salvia is known for its masses of true-blue flowers that bloom almost year-round, with a huge flush of color from late spring through autumn. ‘Marine Blue’ grows 2-3 feet tall – mounding in the center, with the side branches spreading along the ground and rooting out as they grow. Hummingbirds, Butterflies and Bees are attracted to the vivid-blue, two-lipped flowers, making it an ideal choice to include in pollinator and bee-friendly gardens.

The grey-green foliage is finely textured and releases a pleasant fragrance when brushed against. Salvia chamaedryoides
