This hardy perennial sage sends up tall, arching spikes with violet/blue flowers which are magnets for bees!  Planting this sage supports the bee population while adding colour and height to your garden at the same time.  That’s a win-win!  Prefers well drained soil and full sun.  Let it go to seed and you will find new seedlings popping up the following season.  Begins blooming in early summer.
