A compact, bushy variety with stunning spikes of long lasting violet-blue flowers that fade to reveal burgundy calyces, for extended garden color; somewhat drought tolerant; excellent for the sunny border or containers. Blue Marvel Meadow Sage has masses of beautiful spikes of violet flowers with blue overtones and burgundy calyces rising above the foliage from mid spring to mid fall, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its fragrant narrow leaves remain grayish green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
