Plant Highlights

This sage is very useful in the garden. It is tolerant of heat and needs very little water, making its creeping and groundcover characteristics a good match for rocky hillsides or barren areas. This a slow-growing spreader tha is often found growing near granite rocks, and tougher conditions where other sage varieties have a harder time. The flowers are blueish-purple and are in bloom from spring to early summer, providing butterflies, hummingbirds, and pollinators with a slow-growing field of flowers to visit. The leaves are a gray-green, and fragrant when crushed.

Did well for me first year, but did not return in the spring after the 2016-2017 big water winter (24 inches in Poway).
