Salvia black and blue has become our favorite hummingbird plant. We featured it in our very first post on this blog. Since that time we’ve learned a little more about this plant. We live in southeastern Pennsylvania and it may or may not survive our winters. We grow it in a container on our deck and in the winter we put the pot in our garage, watering it every once in a while so it doesn’t dry out.
This past year the plant spread so much in the pot that we divided it and got 2 additional plants we put in our flowerbed and they’re growing great. Last year we also put one in our flowerbed and this past winter mulched it real good. It came back this year. The most important thing is that our hummingbirds keep coming back because they can’t resist the Salvia Black and Blue.
