Created through a happy accident, Salvia ‘Crystal Blue’,was discovered in a field of Salvia by Jerry Van Der Kolk of Michigan, USA.
He brought his discovery to Walters Gardens, Inc., also of Michigan, and they agreed with Jerry’s assessment and introduced the plant for him.
This plant has been very popular in North America, and now it’s available in the European market through Hardy's Cottage Garden Plants.
The pastel blue colour of the flowers blends with almost any plant.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
