An exciting new salvia, Salvia BODACIOUS® 'Smokey Jazz' flowers, and freely re-flowers throughout the season, in bright berry-colored blooms on smoky black calyxes, and the dark green leaves keep their color in the summer heat. Its improved branching creates a compact, rounded habit, but pruning after the first flowering will enhance branching and encourage blooming.

Hummingbirds love this anise-scented sage, so you'll want to plant it in your pollinator garden, in mass or with companion plants. Since BODACIOUS® 'Rhythm & Blues' has the same breeding, it is a perfect companion for Salvia BODACIOUS® 'Smokey Jazz'.

Salvia BODACIOUS® 'Smokey Jazz' is hardy in Zones 8 to 11 but is best grown as an annual in colder climates.
