Hummingbirds adore the fruity-scented, fuchsia flowers produced by native Hummingbird Sage (Salvia spathacea). If you are committed to protecting these amazing little creatives, this native perennial is a must-have to provide a critical nectar source.
This herbaceous perennial can be massed in dry or used in perennial and mixed shrub borders. A member of the mint family, this place will happily grow to cover ground for you.
One of their best features is the extremely unique blooms produced from winter to summer. Single, intricate plum-colored tall spires are held aloft over the furry, sweetly fragrant leaves.
Tubular magenta blooms peek out every little bit all along the entire length of the flower spire. They are gorgeous and will draw in your feathered friends with a sweet, fruit scent that will permeate your entire landscape. What a nice way to welcome spring every year!
Extremely drought-tolerant, plant in well-drained soil in full sun or part shade – even under oak trees. You’ll be so glad you did your part to help native wildlife!
