Short-lived perennial with white-downy foliage. We grew ours from seed last year - it rained a lot last summer, and most of our seedlings rotted away, one by one - by this spring, just one survived. I stuck it on our back yard island hillside, and promptly forgot about it - until today I was struck by a splash of bright white from a distance. Sure enough, it was the silver sage. Most sources say that the flowers should be removed to promote the foliage, but I must say I like the flowers.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
