Yugoslavian cutleaf sage (Salvia jurisicii)
SAL-vee-ah jur-iss-ISS-ee-eye
Genus:  Salvia
This sage is eye-catching in and out of bloom, with its attractive basal rosette of feathery foliage and showy display of dense flower spikes. The flowers come in shades of blue, white, and light pink, but the dark blue strain ( S. jurisicii 'Blue') is the most desirable. Best planted in enriched garden loam, Yugoslavian cutleaf sage blooms in late spring.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  This sage has feathery foliage and dense spikes of upside-down flowers.
Care:  Provide full sun to light shade and almost any well-drained soil. Deadheading will encourage more blooms.
Propagation:  Divide in early spring or take softwood cuttings anytime.
Problems:  Infrequent, but watch for aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies.
