Mexican Bush Sage
Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha) is a superb perennial plant that's native to Mexico. From spring to late summer the bush makes an attractive mound of narrow, strappy gray-green leaves on upright shoots. In late summer through fall, fuzzy purple blooms appear for a stunning show that also happens to be quite popular with hummingbirds. The standard type sports a purple calyx with a protruding, white, center flower. Also available is a form with both purple calyx and purple flower. Mexican bush sage prefers full sun to part shade.
