Sinaloa Sage

Salvia sinaloensis

This compact bushy Salvia displays a tantalizing color. Low growing stems initially trail on the ground, concealed by dark green, textured leaves infused with plum-purple hues, and bronze-tinted new growth. Well above the narrow foliage, deep blue, airy, upright spikes feature spaced whorls of sable calyxes and vivid flowers marked with two subtle white lines on each lower lip. A charmer for the border’s edge, a stone wall, or the rock garden.
