This plant is a three-way hybrid between Salvia mojavensis, S. clevelandii and S. dorrii. It retains the strong, pungent aroma of the Desert sage and the interesting whorled flowering spikes of the Cleveland sage while introducing compactness, extreme drought tolerance and hardiness to the mix. This shrub will top out at about 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. The showy flowers are dark cobalt blue, and are generally produced in the spring and fall. This salvia has performed well in Las Vegas, where other species have suffered from the heat. It does require well-drained soils! Hardy to 0 F. USDA Zone 7.
