- Super easy care
- Stunning cool-toned flowers
- Soft, scented foliage
Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha) is an eye-catching, highly desirable garden plant. The soft (and we literally mean ‘soft’ – touching them is like petting a bunny) silver-grey lance-shaped leaves grace these plants from top to bottom. They are sometimes called ‘velvet sage’ because of their great texture. And as fantastic as the foliage is, that’s not the only thing that makes them superstars.
For a one-two punch of beauty, they are covered in gracefully drooping racemes of lovely amethyst purple blooms from late summer to the first frost. These gorgeous flowers stand out across the garden and attract butterflies and hummingbirds like nobody’s business!
In warm winter areas, these are evergreen shrubs and everywhere else these are prolific annuals. They will grow their full size in one season in most places.
These South American natives look great with finely textured silver Artemisia, rusty red ornamental grasses or bold blue-green agaves. They work massed in big beds or lined up along a border where you can see and enjoy them from your patio.
Mexican Bush Sage is one of the most versatile plants on the market. It will fit into just about any garden style and will probably even steal the show! Order yours from us today before we run out.
