Salvia is a large genus, containing about 900 species. In our climate mostly common (evergreen) sage is grown for culinary uses. Also, very popular are those of subtropical origin that are used here as annuals with long flowering season, especially in public areas. We concentrate on herbaceous perennials which are not widely cultivated and we believe that there are species, hybrids, and varieties worth the job.

BLUE BOUQUETTA® is a fantastic dwarf woodland sage found as a mutation of a salvia bestseller Ostfriesland by Theo Alkemade in their nursery in Dutch town Lisse in 2013. It forms small and neat mounds of only some 20 cm tall, upright stems producing deep violet blue flowers. The plants are dense and uniform and do look like a tiny bouquet. Flowering usually begins in early July and continues for 4-6 weeks. If you cut the whole plant back to the ground after the first flowering phase, and feed it a little, it will re-grow into a nice and bushy clump with plenty of flowering stems offering the same show in late summer. Leaves are 4-5 cm long, mid green, narrowly ovate, wrinkled, and softly hairy. Patent No. PP28393 was granted in 2017.

Sage will grow in almost any well-drained soil. For best results grow it in light, humus-rich, well-drained soil in full sun or light shade. It needs no fertilizing, only in very poor or compacted soils it will benefit from occasional feeding with a balanced fertilizer. In early spring remove all above-ground parts except for rosette of new or over-wintered, healthy leaves lying flat on the ground. It is perfectly hardy to about -34 °C (USDA zone 4) and will grow in outdoor pots and throws, too.
