Sage, Purple (Salvia leucophylla) plant in a 4 inch pot, organic
Sage, Purple (Salvia leucophylla), wild form
Hardy to Zones 9 to 12
Deciduous woody perennial growing to 6 feet unless seriously pruned back, native to baja, coastal california and associated transverse mountain ranges. Silvery foliage with purple flowers occurring in whorls, with protruding stamens, very showy as the Salvias tend to be. Incredibly drought tolerant–a good subject for xeroscaping. Aromatic and medicinal, with the same medicinal attributes as garden sage–drying to secretions (sweat, breast milk) and stimulating to memory. Sweetly expectorant. Good for offerings. Plant prefers fast-draining, dryish soils and full sun.
