This is the non-scientific name used for a plant. A plant may have several common names, depending on the gardener's location. To further confuse the matter, a common name may be shared by several completely different plants. At Flowers by the Sea, we rely on the scientific name to identify our plants and avoid confusion.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones indicate the temperature zones where a plant is likely to thrive. It is determined by the average annual winter minimum temperature. Actual winter temperatures may be higher or lower than the average.

The anticipated mature size of the plant: Height, Width & Flower Height.
This is the average amount of sunlight that a plant needs to thrive. Generally, full sun exposure is 6 or more hours of direct sun daily while partial shade is less than 4 hours of sun or dappled shade all day. Plants may tolerate more sunlight in cooler climates and need afternoon shade in extremely hot climates.
|Full sun to partial shade|
This is the kind of soil that a plant needs to thrive. Most plants require a well-drained soil that allows the water to soak into the soil without becoming soggy. Sandy and clay soils can be improved by digging in compost to improve drainage.
|Well drained & rich|
Plants have specific water requirements. Water loving means the plant needs regular watering to keep the soil moist. Average generally indicates applying 1 inch of water per week, or watering when the soil is dry to a depth of 3 to 4 inches. One inch of water is equal to 5 gallons per square yard of soil surface.
This is the size of the pot your plant will arrive in.

(Rhythm and Blues Anise-Scented Sage) This variety is a far superior version of the older standby 'Black and Blue'. Easy to grow and rewarding, this hummingbird favorite is our very best Anise Scented Sage.
Grow this variety as an aromatic border plant in full sun and well drained
soil. It appreciates regular moisture and fertile soil, but can survive
moderate stress from shortages of either. The thick dahlia-like tuberous
roots, which survive well into Zone 8, are reliable and long lived.
With moderate preperation for the winter, it is generally Zone 7 hardy,
and can survive Zone 6 winters with appropriate care.
Unlike the herbaceous 'Black & Blue', Rhythm and Blues is semi-woody, and has a much longer blooming season than other varieties. The strong stems and thick deep green leaves are durable and not prone to breakage. The flowers are larger and more numerous as well. Flowers by the Sea is proud to offer this plant for the first time in 2017.
