Description For Salvia Blue Seeds


Named as Blue Sage, this perennial, Blue Salvia is known as annual plants in temperate zones. They cannot withstand cold winters or hard frost. They come in variety of colors including orange, lavender, white and pink.

How to grow Salvia Blue from Seeds:

Introduction and Uses: It is a perennial species, but is grown as an annual in India. The plants have bright green leaves, bearing long spikes of lavender-blue flowers.

Salvia Blue is ideal for growing in mass, in flower beds, borders, pots, and background in the rock garden. It can be grown in the hedge, under trees and semi-shaded places. Salvia Blue is also used as a houseplant, but its flowers drop off quickly in indoor conditions.

Common Name: Salvia blue bedder

Family: Lamiaceae

Flowering/ Growing Season: Winter

Growing Method of Salvia Blue Flower:


  • Salvia is grown by transplantation method.
  • Seeds are sown from August to November. In milder climates
  • Seeds are planted thinly in nursery beds/ seed pans/seedling trays.
  • Fine sandy soil is required for seedbed (Outdoors), or coco peat is used as sowing medium for seedling trays (Indoors)
  • Before sowing the seeds, soil/coco peat should be made slightly moist.
  • Immediately after sowing the seeds, watering should be done carefully with a watering can.
  • Germination is slow and takes 10-15 days.
  • Seedlings are allowed to grow on seedbeds/trays kept in semi-shade.
  • Seedlings are transplanted in pots or flower beds when first two true leaves develop.
  • Seedlings should be transplanted in high-quality rich soil or potting mixture.

  • Planting Distance: Spacing of 30-60 cm is recommended in the ground. Plants can be grown in 30 cm pot.

    Watering: The plants like liberal watering. Salvias planted in the garden are watered twice a week, and potted ones are watered every alternate day.

    Feeding: Salvias like fertile soil. When planted in the container it prefers a rich mixture of soil and cow dung manure in the proportion of 1:1. Too much nitrogen fertilization will produce leafy growth and delay flowering. Application of a well-balanced liquid fertilizer once a week is recommended.

    Plant care: Spray fungicides on young seedlings to avoid ‘damping off.'

    Bloom time: Salvia flowers in 3.5-4 months after sowing. Buy variety of flower seeds online.

    Regeneration: After the first flush of bloom is through, the plants are cut back, and top dressing of manure is given. After some time, new growths will appear for the second flush of flowering.
