The Modern Southern Garden: Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage


The Modern Southern Garden

The Profile

Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage

The modern southern garden should have a variety of rich color scattered about. Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage is a salvia known for its endless spikes of color throughout the summer months. This bushy perennial is naturally compact in nature offering lilac blooms that climb up leafy green fragrant stems reaching approximately 18 to 24-inches tall. Although Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage appears similar to May Night Salvia, the hue of the blooms is just a little bit lighter. It makes an excellent border plant near mailboxes or throughout vast garden spaces. I have found the greatest success with this particular variety when installation is in an area that receives good morning sun with a bit of afternoon shade past lunchtime. Water plants regularly during the hottest days of summer & thin them occasionally to keep them looking lush. Learn how to create stunning arrangements with Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage perfect for a number of summer parties.

How To Navigate 
Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage

Savvy southerners know to have distinctive garden varieties planted around their outdoor space that can be used for a number of occasions. Creating arrangements from these staples are designed to be effortless & fast to prepare since entertaining involves many fine details as the event draws closer. Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage offers distinctive charm to entertaining vignettes. Several spiky blooms make an impact without a whole lot of effort.


The Technique

Bordeau Steel Blue Meadow Sage grounds garden spaces as the spikes bloom well into the hottest months. These cold hardy specimens perform quite well in poor soil conditions & are wonderful to use in cut flower arrangements. Accompany with several sun-loving flowers & plants including Shasta Daisies, Purple Coneflowers, Caladium & Lamb’s Ears for a burst of sweet summer sunshine. Create a number of similar collections to place down the center of dining tables or sprinkle throughout tables on decks & patios when backyard barbecues are planned.
