About Salvia Victoria

Their spikes of cool blue flowers remind me of a lavender blossom except these bloom all summer long. Salvia Victoria need little maintenance and can withstand hot dry spells. You wouldn’t think by the type of flower they have, but the hummingbirds and butterflies really like them. Ours continued to give our garden color right into November. Salvia Victoria has strong deer resistance and is on the University of Minnesota and Washington State University deer resistant list.

Planting and Growing Annual Salvia

Make sure your Annual Salvia “harden off” to cool nights and windy conditions before planting. This requires leaving them outside in a protected area for a few days otherwise, they may wilt after planting. Choose an area that is sunny. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Remove your plant from its pack and gently loosen the root ball. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
