Bloom Day Salvias

It is the 15th of the month, which means Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day again. To view links to other garden bloggers' blooms around the world to see what it blooming in their gardens today and to read their collective comments, go to
Here is the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the past month had been cool and wet. Then summer came early (as usual). We have had a week of no rain hear and highs in the mid-90s! The plants are all suffering and I can hardly keep up with minimal watering just to keep things alive. My rain barrel is dry and I had to turn on my outside water hose for the first time.
This bloom day I decided to focus a few new Salvias (sages) that I added to my garden in the last year. Enjoy!
Salvia 'Brookside'
Salvia 'Purple Rain'
Salvia "Mesa Azure'

So what is blooming in YOUR garden today?

Yikes, I hope that heat backs off before the Garden Bloggers' Fling. I don't have great success with Salvias in general, with the exception of Cleveland Sage, but I do grow 'Mesa Azure' and it's done amazingly well in my southern California garden.
Good to hear that 'Mesa Azure' is a success for you.
Prepare for hot and humid, Kris. Though we may get a break, summer in DC can be extremely variable.
