With downy gray foliage and unusual dull rosy brownish-colored flowers, this sage is suitable as a specimen plant or as an informal shrub border in fynbos gardens, coastal gardens, water-wise gardens, or as an interesting addition to the herb garden.

Traditionally used in medicine in Southern Africa to treat a variety of ailments, and as disinfectant antiseptic wash for skin infections and wounds.
