Plant Highlights

This low-spreading, mounding sage is an especially drought-tolerant variety and recommended for slopes or difficult, erosion-prone areas. The pale white flowers are formed in a semi-circular fashion and are arranged in tufts on the long, upright stems. The shrubs reach about 1 foot tall, with about a six foot spread. The evergreen leaves are fragrant and add contrast to the beautiful flowers which are loved by butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
