From early spring through summer, eye-popping whorls of flowers with blue-purple petals & deep pink calyces held on wiry stems. Leaves are silver-grey, fuzzy, and aromatic. This is a pollinator magnet: be prepared for hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and more to visit this plant on a regular basis! Tolerates a wide range of conditions: blazing hot sun to a bit shady, and bone dry to some irrigation. Also ok in clay OR gravel!

Introduced by Las Pilitas Nursery in California. Here's how they describe its origins: "Celestial Blue Sage is a hybrid between Salvia clevelandii 'Alpine' and Salvia pachyphylla or a three way hybrid with 'Pozo Blue' which would add Salvia leucophylla into the mix."

Mature size: up to 3-4 feet tall & wide

Minimum temperature: 0° F
