With evergreen, or shall we say evergray, extremely aromatic, spatulate, silver-gray foliage, this tough plant has large blue-violet and red-violet flowers all summer and a larger bloom than most sages. It's a good xeriscape plant, counteracts soil erosion, and is deer-resistant if not deer proof. It looks terrific in winter, even here in Western Oregon, and still looking great after being pounded by wind, rain, snow, ice.... I like its tan, textured, woody "trunklet" and branches. Woody perennial or shrub, 2-3' x 2-3,' mounding. Sharply draining soil is imperative.

Minimum temperature: -20° F
