Cleveland Sage Salvia clevelandii One Gallon Size

Cleveland Sage is a beautiful, fast growing and highly aromatic species of sage native to the coast of southern California and northern Baja California. Its common names include Blue sage, Fragrant sage, and Cleveland sage. This is a small, hairy, grey-green shrub native to the chaparral and coastal sage scrub plant communities of the region. It has wrinkly leather-textured leaves with tiny ridged teeth along the edges and it bears plentiful rounded flower clusters of tubular lavender to dark purple flowers with long stamens. The fruit is a spotted nutlet. Hummingbirds are very attracted to this plant.

Plant Clevelend Sages on well-drained flats, bluffs or gentle slopes for best results. Limit summer water to no more than once per month, and if possible, naturalize after the first or second year. If this plant gets too much water it will often die after 2-3 years. It is somewhat more tolerant of garden watering in very well drained soils. Cultivars and hybrids include:

'Winnifred Gilman', a popular cultivar with intense violet-blue flowers. 'Betsy Clebsch', a shorter cultivar with wide variation in flower color. 'Allen Chickering', 'Aromas', 'Pozo Blue', 'Santa Cruz Dark', and 'Whirly Blue' are hybrids with similar appearance.

Your plant will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. These have been growing in one gallon containers.  The plants will be between 7 to 10 inches in height with well-developed roots.
