salvia transylvanica 'blue cloud'

It might look like just a less floriferous version of Salvia nemerosa in the photo, but Salvia transylvanica 'Blue Cloud' is still very attractive. It has much bigger leaves, about 7" without the stem, and this plant is 24" tall. I planted it as a tiny 2-1/4" pot last spring, and it steadily grew to produce one stem blooming in the late fall until it was frost-killed. Many more stems this year, and a great color. If last year was any indication, it should bloom until fall. Maybe not as many stems in bloom at once than 'May Night', but I expect a much longer season.
