Good Qualities

Nice blue-purple color (2); Plants grew well but very short; The seeds germinated easily (2); Very hardy, healthy looking plugs, I thought it would be a real winner!; So far so good, plants look nice in the field, germination was good; None; Several flower spikes (usually 3) from a central stem, strong stems (no netting needed), one of first plants to bloom in spring; Nice form.


Rosetted but no flowers (3); Will winter over? Perennial?; Plants melted in the field; I don’t know if it was the cool weather, lack of sunshine and constant rain in June but the plant seemed to form a rosette and just sat in the field, we finally pulled it out at the end of August, couldn’t find much information about the plant online; This rotted out from too much rain; Short, poor germination, poor vase life, not very pretty; Hard to find stems without petal browning; Very late to bloom, only got 5 stems off of one plant out of 12 plants on 8/26/09 (planted in field 5/27, Zone 4/5); Slow to start or take off in the high tunnel until air temps were into the 80’s.

Probably too cold here in NY; Plants grew well and will bloom next season; Is this species, perhaps, a perennial?, after almost six months in the ground, they still had not even shown a hint of willingness to bloom, moving toward winter cover crops, we pulled the plug, but did pot some up into containers to see what the future might bring; Never again, not really as nice as salvia ‘Majestic Spire’; Didn’t bloom.
