(Hummingbird Falls Anise-Scented Sage) Salvia BODACIOUS® 'Hummingbird Falls' is the world's first hanging basket sage and a plant that hummingbirds battle over. It's a natural alternative to plastic and glass feeders that require frequent cleaning and refilling with sugar water.

Hummingbird Falls is a Salvia guaranitica hybrid developed by Flowers by the Sea. Decumbent, this sage forms a dense, short mound of glossy foliage and nectar-rich, violet-blue blossoms with stems that gracefully tumble downward then turn back up at their tips. Its fragrant, dark green leaves are veined and shaped like hearts.

Give this heat-tolerant beauty full sun to partial shade and rich, well-drained potting mix. A large hanging basket is best for supporting its abundant growth. Depending on local precipitation, Hummingbird Falls Anise-Scented Sage needs average to ample watering.

Be prepared for plenty of buzz from butterflies, hummingbirds, and envious neighbors.

BODACIOUS Hummingbird Falls has won the prestigious Green Thumb award, recognized as the most outstanding new garden product of 2022.
