May Night Salvia – Not Blooming

Q: I planted three May Night salvia a few weeks ago. They looked great for a while but now they’re not blooming at all.

A: ‘May Night’ is a great reblooming salvia but faded bloom spikes must be removed regularly. I recommend visiting them each week with a pair of scissors and removing any spike that is less than one-third-filled with blue flowers. The plants will produce blooms again in that spot in three weeks.
