ornamental sage
Common name ornamental sage
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z8-11)
Flowers violet (late spring-fall)
Size 12-24"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Shrubby evergreen hybrid salvia (S. greggii x S. lycoides) similar in appearance to its first parent, but with smaller leaves, violet bordering on true blue flowers, and perhaps less cold-hardiness. It should be OK through most Houston winters, though. Listed by some sources as a cultivar of S. greggii.

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