All of the varieties in this collection are Salvia pratensis hybrids, so you know you can expect excellent garden performance.
'Evening Attire' is the darkest, most vibrant blue Salvia of the FASHIONISTA® collection. Huge, vivid violet blue flowers are packed tightly into a refined habit. Flowers are held on dark calyxes above dark green foliage.
Salvia is a staple item for every sunny garden. It asks little more than sunshine and a little drink every once in a while in return for producing a bountiful mass of colorful flower spires from late spring into early summer. It forms a uniform, rounded clump of aromatic, rugose green foliage that looks nice all season long and is not enjoyed by rabbits or deer.
Salvia is easy to grow in almost any climate. Though it is drought tolerant, it will bloom better with regular watering. Deadheading encourages a longer bloom time. If plants get leggy during the season, cut them all the way back to the newly developed foliage. If cut back, plants may rebloom in fall but often the flowers are fewer and smaller.
