Salvia ‘Blue and White’ is from a cutting by Greg Rubin, most likely of a Salvia ‘Betsy Clebsch”. Unlike the Betsy Clebsch flowers that are variable and can be blue, white or bi-colored on a single plant, the ‘Blue and White’ have bloomed consistently with bi-colored deep blue and white flowers. It begins flowering in May and continues through the summer and into fall. ’Blue and White’ has compact growth to about 3 feet tall and wide. It is a bit more fussy about it’s soil then the straight Cleveland sage, as it prefers good drainage and a hot, sunny site.
