Plant Highlights

This unusual variety of Hummingbird Sage sports flowers that start out yellow and mature to white as they fully open. They add variety when mixed in with the pink varieties of Hummingbird Sage. This small and compact species of sage is loved by hummingbirds and produces beautifully fragrant foliage and flowers. Flowers are held on large spears that emerge from the center of the plant. This sage loves afternoon shade and does well in forest floors and in understory locations. They thrive in clay soil and part shade. The plant spreads by rhizomes and will spread once established. Ideal under oaks.
