Salvia

Sages for Descanso Gardens

Sage (Salvia ) is a perennial, shrub or sub-shrub with a strong, pungent scent. Most are upright or shrub-like, but a couple of species form mats or hang over banks. It blooms in late spring through summer, depending on species and several species are native to the Descanso area. It is a hummingbird nectar flower, but deer and rabbits leave it alone.
ruth says: "S.Mystic Spires Blue: exceptional plant, prolific even in early December with blooms. Cleveland Sage does really well as do the flowering varieties in containers."
