You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Sage ‘Indigo Spires’ (Salvia hybrid)
This notable bush-like salvia produces stately spires of purple blossoms. The blue bracts and stem retain their color in dried flower arrangements. Blooming on the shortening day length of summer, it flowers for us right through the fall. If grown in pots indoors in a sunny spot, the flowers continue through the winter.
Hardy to Zone 8 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 2-3’ in container, minimum
temperature 35º, blooms in spring, summer and fall.
