Salvia farinacea ‘Big Blue F1’ has a upright dark green foliage that produces an purple flower that blooms from summer into autumn. Very hardy but may need protection should we have extreme frost during the winter. Perfect for pots and borders. Attracts bees and butterflies as the flowers are rich in nectar.

We aim to send our plants out within a week of purchase however they may sometimes be delays depending on stock level. Please see the Product description to see delivery time We send our plants out in double wall cardboard box which gives your plants the best protection during delivery. Each individual plant will be placed in a bio-degradable plastic bag and wrapped tightly around the steam of the plant which will limit the amount of soil falling out should there be movement during delivery. Two canes are put in the pot, one to secure the stem and one to limit vertical movement. Please note we may prune the plant back to fit in the box. All plants that leave our nursery in excellent condition, however sometimes damage can occur during delivery so should there be a problem, please contact us immediately and we will sort it out.
