Plant Highlights

This long-lived sage is a three-way hybrid between Salvia mojavensis, S. clevelandii and S. dorrii. It combines the strong aroma and silvery leaves of the Desert sage, the showy whorled flower spikes of the Cleveland sage, and the deep cobalt-blue flowers, hardiness and extreme drought tolerance of the Desert Purple Sage. The Hybrid Desert sage loves full sun and requires very well drained soils. It performs very well in the low deserts and in the Riverside area. The flowers that appear on this 3’ x 3’ plant in fall and spring attract hummingbirds, butterflies and other native pollinators. Trim off seed heads (after the songbirds are done with them) and prune lightly to maintain form after flowering.
