This Salvia has beautiful violet-blue flowers with bracts that are green with purple-black ends.  It grows to 2 metres tall and maybe a little more and nearly as wide.  Leaves are an interesting heart shape with well-defined ribs.  Flowering from spring until autumn  and suitable for sun or part shade.  Will survive frosts down to -3 degrees celsius.  May burn though but will recover.

A great robust perennial that puts on a fantastic show if you have the room.
