Description

30-36" tall x 18-24" wide (seed propagated). Native to the drier areas of the western Himalayas and Kashmir, this outstanding performer is right at home in western gardens where its stately architecture, large, handsome gray-green foliage and showy spikes of lavender-pink verticillasters (whorled flower clusters) make Kashmir Sage a highlight of the summer garden. This plant is invaluable for use in both sun and shade. Easily grown in most any soil, including clay, sand and garden loam. You can thank Panayoti Kelaidis of Denver Botanic Garden for his long time advocacy of this undeservedly obscure plant.
