This cross of Salvia clevelandii with Salvia leucophylla produces a beautiful and compact hybrid, one that can fill a quaint corner of any landscape. This 1' to 2'mounding sage originated from the UC Botanical Garden and has developed an enthusiastic following. As the name suggests,'Bee's Bliss' is attractive to pollinators who visit its lavender-pink flowers in spring. The gray green foliage contrasts wonderfully with the bright green of black sage varieties, ceanothus or manzanitas.
Hybrid; origin = cuttings (19__) S. leucophylla x clevelandii or sonomensis; intro Roger Raiche UC Botanical Garden 1989
