Salvia clevelandii (Chaparral Sage)


Native to the coastal chaparral zone of southern California, this evergreen shrub has highly aromatic gray-green foliage. The unusual flower spikes consist of clusters of blue-violet flowers stacked like shish-kebobs along the spike. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to the blossoms in the spring. Plant in full sun to part shade and provide excellent drainage.
