Plant Highlights

Whirly Blue sage is a hybrid of Salvia clevelandii and S. leucophylla and sports aromatic grey-green foliage and rich violet flowers that appear on 1 to 2 foot blooming stems. It is a dense growing shrub, 4-5 feet tall, with an even greater spread.
The larger flower whorls and the deeper color of the flowers distinguish ‘Whirly Blue” from both Salvia ‘Allen Chickering’ and Salvia ‘Aromas’. Whirly Blue Sage is great for dry, sunny spots and appreciates well-draining soil. Hummingbirds, bees and butterflies enjoy its flowers and we enjoy its leaves in tea.
