(Jerusalem Sage, Royal Sage, Sacred Sage) Please note that this is not the common yellow-flowered non-salvia, Latin name Phlomis fruticosa, which also goes by the common name “Jerusalem Sage.”) Our Salvia hierosolymitana is a mounding perennial to 2 feet, native to Eastern Mediterranean basin. Flowers wine-red, calyxes, bracts and stem also tinged in red. The plant is inodorous although well-endowed with glandular hairs. A plant for the serious sage aficionado, it is very rare to find in cultivation, and it is rare to find seed availability.
