15" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). 'Minimus' is valuable in the xeriscape for both its showy deep lavender-blue flowers and its dense mound of finely textured and scented, culinary leaves. It seems to tolerate more clay in its soil than other Salvia officinalis cultivars. Plant it with other late-spring bloomers like Hymenoxys acaulis.
