Salvia clevelandii 'Winifred Gilman'
June, 2021
 
Salvia Winifred Gilman
 

 The 'Winifred Gilman' variety of Salvia clevelandii is a compact flowering shrub that can reach  3 feet tall by 3 feet wide. The gray-green leaves and red stems are offset by the blueish-purple blooms that attract both hummingbirds and butterflies. The shrub is tolerant of sandy soils, but is not fond of the harder clay soils. This colorful addition to your landscape has a sweet fragrance. Plant in flower borders, beneath larger shrubs or beside a pathway to benefit from the fragrance. This shrub tolerates cold and survives hot summers with little water.
