BOG SAGE (Salvia uliginosa)

"Bluer than Blue," that's how I describe Bog Sage. I first saw this Salvia at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. The blue was so striking I couldn't take my eyes off it! I've had it a few years. If I'd let it, it would take over my garden. When it starts to travel, I easily pull it up. This is not however one of those nice smelling salvias, and I'm reminded of that when I'm yanking away. The rest of the time, the scent is undetectable.
