Today's Salvias of the Day is Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha 'Midnight').

This plant can be found in the ATP Plant Database at:

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more!



Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Though I loved the plant, and still do, it does become massive. Clearly, I didn't have sufficient room for it to show off!

@pirl

Except for a couple of years, I've grown it in large (20 inches or larger) containers.

Good idea. I quit most container gardening a few years ago but it would be stunning.

The buds on this year's plant started showing a few days ago, so it won't be long for flowers!

Flowers By The Sea offers it and that's where I get mine at (as well as most if not all my Salvias and other plants FBTS offers). One of my hubby, Dean's favorites and I love it too! As of today, I'm still waiting for the flowers to bloom, but I already have buds. It is growing in a 20 inch container, but I've grown it before in the ground.
