Roseleaf Sage

Salvia involucrata

Lush, showy, tall, long-blooming rosy pink-flowering sage that is covered with pollinators throughout its long blooming season until a hard frost. Called “roseleaf sage” because its inflorescences in the bud stage look rather like roses. We have found it to be a fantastic cut flower, one of the best of the salvias. Another monster sage that is also gopher resistant!
