36-40" tall x 15" wide (seed/cutting propagated). This is an unusually xeric, clear blue colored form of the lovely Prairie Sage grown from seed I collected from a patch of short grass prairie just east of Santa Fe, NM. The flowers of this collection are as blue as the NM sky on a September afternoon. These plants are strong stemmed, upright growers that flower for over a month beginning in late summer through early fall and are found growing in alkaline clay-loam. Pair it up with Zauschneria arizonica for an extended display of fall color.
