Plant Highlights

We consider the fragrance of Cleveland sage leaves and the fragrance of orange blossoms to be part of the essence of California. The Somis hills are home to Salvia leucophylla, which has beautiful 8 ft. tall silvery foliage setting off bright pink blooms, but the foliage fragrance is not exciting. Thankfully a bee arranged a tryst between the two sages in our garden. The resulting ‘Love Child’ is a great garden plant 2-3 ft. tall by 3 ft. wide with the unmistakable fragrance of Cleveland Sage and the pink flowers of Salvia leucophylla. This plant was introduced by John Schoustra of Greenwood Gardens.
