Plant Highlights

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

Put a couple of these in southern california (Zone 10b) full sun, sandy soil. Tolerates heat and low water very well. Contrasts great with our manzanita. Seems very tough. Grows low and spreads nicely. Not as 'woody' as Salvia leucophylla 'Pt. Sal' and much closer to a ground cover than it as well.
