Salvia azurea 'Nekan' has arrived from Plant Delights Nursery. Found wild just north of Lincoln, Nebraska (hey, that's where I live, isn't it?), this pitcher sage sports sky blue flowers and hairy stems with greyish leaves, growing 3-4' tall and 2-'3 wide. I figure it should do quite well here, don't you? No nasty alien invasives from Iowa or South Dakota for my garden--from now on, it's all Nebraska all the time.
I'd give you an image, but the few I've found are poor and / or copyrighted, so go here instead.
