A stunning drought tolerant visual & textural accent, “Silver Sage” is also quite cuddly, as its large wavy leaves are garbed in soft downy fuzz. Forming a large low rosette to 3' across, place it right up front in your garden where everyone will be able to notice it and touch it and where it will receive the excellent drainage it requires.
Dramatic and showy 3' or taller candelabra stems bearing white hooded flowers appear in Summer, but do remove before they go to seed to give extra years of life to this unusual Sage.
