Indigo Woodland Sage

Salvia forsskaolii

Showy blue large flowers with contrasting white throats that bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love! Deer resistant and drought tolerant. A sturdy plant that can grow in clay! This is a rare sage that we have loved having in our gardens for over 30 years. It occasionally self-sows, which we always love!
