Details

Salvia guarantica 'Bodacious Rhythm and Blues' is similar to the original hummingbird-magnet 'Black and Blue' but the stems are less brittle, so it doesn't get as beat up in the wind. The stunning dark blue flowers contrast sharply with the black stems, and attracts hummingbirds like no other plant! Excellent for middle or back of the garden. Terrific complement to Sun Coleus, Lantana and Rudbeckia.
