Dune Sage

Salvia africana-lutea

This is a beautiful plant that has such a unique, strong, and delicious scent! A great shrub in the garden where its silver foliage and singular rusty-orange flowers are sure to attract the attention of humans, birds, and insects. The flowers have a reservoir of sweet nectar in their base – much like the more familiar honeysuckle – and every bit as tasty!
