Plant Description

If you want rich strong indigo blue flowers all summer long, this one's for you. Although considered half-hardy by many (ours have persisted planted here in zone 6 for the past 6 years), Anise Sage grows 2 to 4 feet tall in full sun and average soil, in an open upright manner. Rich, rich, true blue, 1 inch, 2-lipped flowers which hummingbirds love, are borne on open racemes over bright kelly green leaves. Even if your climate may be too cool in winter for Anise Sage, you must have it in your sunny garden as an annual because it just may be the truest blue flower there is, and one of the best flowers out there for hummers.
