There is something extraordinary about blue flowers. This Salvia patens, the gentian sage, is very blue and very beautiful. It comes from Mexico and is therefore a little tender. There is no doubt in my mind that it is worth any amount of pampering to carry it safely through winter.
It also reminds me of my toes, blue since our boiler gave up the ghost yesterday morning. As we all know, I too am very tender. I wish I was in Mexico being pampered.
