Salvia

Sage

Thought in ancient times to perpetuate good health, an Arab proverb asks, “How shall a man die with sage in his garden?” Our Salvias are diverse perennials, shrubs or subshrubs. Many of them hail from the Mediterranean, Mexico and South America.

Drought tolerant, reliable once established, and generally pest and disease free, they combine an array of flowers and aromatic foliage in many different sizes, shapes, and hues.

Plant aficionado Tom Peace helped establish this lavishly hued, west Texan’s notoriety. Quick to grow, full of vigor and more tolerant of cold damp winters than most greggii species, ‘Wild Thing’ showcases good-looking lustrous green foliage and droves of bright cherry pink flowers with contrasting wine-colored calyxes. Plant next to Agastache ‘Apricot Sprite’ and Verbascum ‘Sixteen Candles’ for a wild, long blooming association.

Blooms June–September.

Size: 3' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
