Details
10-12" tall x 12" wide (cutting propagated). When I saw my first plant in bloom some years ago, it literally took my breath away; its flowers are that beautiful! Salvia daghestanica is easy-to-grow, xeric (waterwise), eye-catching in and out of flower, and not browsed by rabbits and deer. In late spring, the low, tight rosettes of textured, nearly-white foliage create a superb backdrop for the showy spikes of large, clear-blue flowers. Dwarf Silver-Leaf Sage blooms for 3 to 4 weeks. It requires a hot, full-sun position and grows readily in most soil types INCLUDING CLAY!. A tidy grower, this plant can be used in perennial borders as an edging plant, in xeriscapes massed around taller perennials or in rock gardens as a treasured specimen.
