Mexican Blue Sage, scientifically known as Salvia chamaedryoides, is a charming perennial herb native to Mexico and parts of the southwestern United States. This herbaceous plant is cherished for its striking, true blue flowers and aromatic foliage. The lance-shaped leaves are gray-green and emit a pleasant fragrance when crushed. Mexican Blue Sage typically blooms from spring to fall, producing spikes of intense blue flowers that attract pollinators, especially bees and butterflies. The compact, mounding growth habit of this sage makes it suitable for borders, rock gardens, or as a ground cover. It thrives in well-draining soil and prefers full sun but can tolerate some partial shade. Drought-tolerant and relatively low-maintenance, Mexican Blue Sage is an excellent choice for water-wise gardens and xeriscaping.
