Product Details

Product Details

As its name suggests, Salvia guaranitica 'Black and Bloom' produces deep blue flowers carried high on ebony stems and blooms continuously throughout the summer. The large blossoms of this vigorous, upright grower have a significant presence in the garden border, growing to a height of 4'. A strong contender that thrives in heat, drought, and humidity. Plants are deer resistant, too. PP 27,183

Pollinators and hummingbirds love the spikes of densely packed Salvia flowers which come in a range of colors: white, pink, red, purple and blue. Long-lasting Salvia blooms can extend from late spring into fall with dependable color. Salvias are especially valuable where summers are hot and dry, for they ignore heat and go steadily about the business of making flowers. Because some Salvias endure colder climates better than others, we classify certain varieties as Perennial Salvia and other less hardy varieties as Annual Salvia. The genus Salvia is part of the Mint (Lamiaceae) family, so most all have square stems and a strong scent when their leaves are crushed.

We categorize this plant as an 'Annual' because it does not survive winter here in our Zone 6 location in Connecticut, so we enjoy a single season display. This plant is truly a tender perennial and will return year after year in warmer areas of the country, perennial for Zones 8 to 10.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Comes Back Year After Year

I can't brag on these plants enough! This is my second review of them, as I came back here to buy more! These are classified as an annual here, but they come back year after year, larger and more impressive each time! My area was classified as zone 7 until a few months ago, when it was changed to zone 8 on the new hardiness map. I am in Northeast Alabama and these have survived several hard freezes here.

Beautiful & Easy

I planted 4 of these in early spring in an area that gets afternoon sun and they have thrived. It is now August and the plants have already been cut back twice as they were so large that I was finding breakage. Google the "Hampton Hack" for more information on pruning these. Each time they have almost instantly reflowered!

They are gorgeous and huge, with a spread 4 feet wide. I keep the height at about 3 feet, lest they fall over and break. I now have a multitude of hummingbirds in my backyard.

These are intensely fragrant (both the leaves and flowers) when touched, hit with a strong breeze, or after a good rain. They smell of fresh clean mint with an additional floral note that's hard to describe. I have saved the flowers to make scented bath salts, which is now a highly coveted gift by my friends.

These do not, sadly, make for a good cut flower arrangement. The flowers will fall off almost instantly, leaving a huge mess all over your table.

Planted 2 of these in full sun and they grew very quickly! Great quality! Beautiful plant!! The flower color is almost an electric blue. I had a hummingbird on these plants everyday and multiple times each day. It seemed to be his favorite and I have a lot of plants they like. This year I bought 8 to spread around the yard in hopes of attracting more hummers. The only issue I have is that we get some good winds here and some of the stems snapped. They re-grew but I think I will try and support them with small stakes.

fragrant leaves on this one

Leaves on this salvia are fragrant which is a bonus. However, insects ate holes in the leaves . The leaves are also a little darker green than in the photo. Hummingbirds preferred the amistad over the black n bloom in CT.

Beautiful and brings in hummingbirds

I struggle to get color into a shady garden, and this plant is perfect. I ordered 3 and put them in shade and partial shade areas. All shot up big and beautiful quickly, gorgeous color all summer long, and brought in a constant stream of hummingbirds, which we never had before. The color is vibrant, it is a stunner.

Plant Salvia in full sun and well-drained soil. For perennial varieties in Zones 5 and colder, drainage is especially important in winter. Cut back hard, to 3-4" after flowering to keep plants compact and to promote rebloom.
