Tolerates heat, drought, and virtually any soil

Fleuroselect Gold Medal Winner 1978

One of the most floriferous sources of deep violet-blue color for the summer garden, Victoria is treasured for its large, vividly-colored spikes, arising in great numbers all summer long on compact 18-inch plants. Especially effective in a mass planting, Victoria is an excellent choice for difficult dry spots, sunny meadowlands, and even in the gritty soil along fences and other "trouble spots" in the garden. It combines well with other summer-blooming annuals, adding much-valued blue tones to the garden.

Direct sow this salvia or begin the seeds indoors for even earlier blooms. Not fussy about soil, it flourishes in blazing sun to dappled shade, tolerating heat, drought, and other vagaries of the weather. In the coastal west and milder climates of the south it can be grown as a perennial.
