Product Description

 

Mealy-Cup Sage / Salvia farinacea

|50 Seeds|

 

Mealy-Cup Sage is native to Texas and Mexico, known for its rich colors and abundant blooms, appearing from the center and shooting up to 10 inches long. Packed with rich dark blue and white bicolor blooms, they are a stunning sight in the sunny garden. Fairy Queen takes this to extremes, with longer flowering spikes, far more profuse blooms, and a longer season. Expect the bicolor azure-and-white flowers to begin in early summer and to continue  right through the middle of fall. With Hummingbirds and butterflies enjoying these long elegant wands of color.  Great for cut flowers.  Fairy Queen stands up effortlessly to heat, humidity, drought, pests, diseases, and poor soil. It is perennial in zones 8-10 and happily grown as an annual everywhere else. 50 Seeds Per Package. 

 

Tips on How to Grow Salvia from Seeds

Germination

  • Optimum conditions for seedling development that begins the day the crop is sown until cotyledon expansion.

  • Expect radicle emergence 3 – 20 days.

  • SOW INDOORS 10-12 weeks before last frost. 15-20 days to germinate.

  • Light is necessary for germination. 
  • TRANSPLANT into your outdoor garden after danger of frost. Space outside12-14" apart. Spacing is variety specific and all information is on our packs.
  • Moisture: Very moist for days 1 – 3 or until radicle emergence. On days 4 – 7 reduce moisture to moist . Once actively growing, begin alternating between moisture levels wet and medium . Allow media to approach dry before re-saturating to level .
  • SOW OUTDOORS- USDA zones 1-8 start indoors as an annual.
  • for USDA zones 8-10 sow seed directly outdoors in the space where you want it to grow as a perennial.
