Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 1997

Good Qualities

Excellent color (3); The Benary Victoria was superior to the other Victoria I had grown. The color was vibrant and the plant more vigorous and the stem length longer. The fall bloom color was a much richer blue. Carefree, long blooming; Pretty when dried; Very prolific germination. Can tolerate light frost; No problems.

Problems

Would be a good, uniform bedding plant. Good strong color..but it is way to short for a cut flower; All but 25 germinated out of 128 cell pack. Too much rainfall-rotted in field; By the time the stems get long enough the blooms weren’t pretty anymore. Wish the stems were longer, sometimes wilted, but most of the time it would perk back up; Skinny spikes limit versatility in design work.

Comments

Possible use as a fresh cut, it appears to shatter easily when dried; Salvia farinacea ‘Blue Bedder’ is a much taller variety.
