Desert Purple Sage is an exciting addition to the horticulture trade. This gem caught our eye immediately when scouting for new plants at our Idaho grower’s fields in September. This western xeric sub-shrub with silvery, aromatic leaves glimmers season long in our sun. In early to mid-summer expect a brilliant display of blue to purple flower spikes that will attract the hummingbirds and honeybees but keep the deer and rabbits away (and probably antelope). Due to its western heritage keep this one in fast draining soils and on the dry side. A perfect companion plant for many of the penstemons we offer.
