Plant Highlights

A very special, little known selection, Salvia ‘Rubin’s Baby’ is grown exclusively by Moosa Creek Nursery. This Salvia is a variant of Salvia ‘Dara’s Choice’, and differs most strongly in that it is less woody when mature, is more compact, and is lower growing. It reaches about 1.5 to 2 feet tall, with a spread of about 3 feet. This sage features lavender blue flowers, and medium green leaves with lighter undersides. Salvia ‘Rubin’s Baby’ came from esteemed native plant educator and designer Greg Rubin’s own garden, and through years of observation he noticed that it is more tolerant of typical garden conditions. In general, Salvia ‘Rubin's Baby’ can tolerate more water and shade than other salvias, making it an excellent ground cover and for bordering a traditional garden. Water carefully in the summer, this sage can tolerate overhead watering about once a week. Prune back in the fall for new spring growth.
