Its shrub-like wide shape is regular, branched, dense and supple.
'Blue Armor' is also very remarkable for its early flowering and the length of the flowering period from May to the first frosts. The 20 cm long flower heads, are made up of little, particularly intense blue flowers with a bright white centre. The elongated light green leaves are semi-evergreen and naturally aromatic.
An easy plant for the garden, in well draining soils, also tolerates being planted in a pot. The Salvia range on sale by SAPHO offer a beautiful palette of colours.
Spring pruning is essential, but only after the hard frosts are finished. Trim the plants back by half to 30 or 40 cm.
Pick off wilted flowers, allowing a summer flowering of better quality.
