Black and Blue Anise Scented Sage

Salvia guaranitica 'Black and Blue'

A semi-evergreen shrub from South America that forms a fragrant, multi-branching mound of glossy, medium green foliage. Tall, slender stalks carry cobalt-blue, two-lipped flowers that burst from extremely dark purple, almost black calyxes during summer and fall. Attractive to pollinators and other beneficial bugs, this makes an elegant container plant or informal hedge.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
