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

(Savannah Blue African Sage) Two South African sages are the parents of this stunning hybrid with large, sky-blue flowers and densely branching, well-cut foliage. Tough and adaptable, this dry garden plant grows in full sun or partial shade.

Savannah Blue gets its feathery foliage from Namibian Sage (Salvia namaensis ) and its flowers and strong stems from Creeping African Sage (Salvia repens). Both of the parent plants are good looking, but this hybrid is spectacular.

Growing to a maximum of 36 inches tall and 24 inches wide, this perennial sage is a deserving choice for container planting. It's also an undemanding groundcover or border plant. We're excited about this sage's pretty looks and practicality.

Highly recommended.
