This perennial is native to South-East Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Salvia uliginosa was first discovered by the British botanist George Bentham (1800-1884) and introduced into horticulture in 1912.
Since then its popularity has never waned, given its generous azure blue flowering and the fact that it is very easy to grow. This was recognised in 1993 by an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
Salvia uliginosa forms dense clump 2 metres high and prefers the sun and rich, moist soil.
Height: 150 cm.
Terminal flowers in bunches. It is a great landscaping asset when used in a tall border to frame a perspective, for instance, a vista to a garden hut.
