Super banner, Cal. I'm not familiar with Mexican sage, but it makes a lovely banner. Lovey dubby

It looks like purple pussy willows. Really cool.

Cal,

My husband and I both love Mexican Sage. Beautiful banner.

Is this the all purple variety or the purple and white variety?

Full size pic if you have it, please.

My first thoughts were exactly what Lestv expressed, "It looks like purple pussy willows". A very interesting capture. Certainly something new added to my garden knowledge. Thank you for making a unique and uncommon banner. 💜💜💜💜💜

I love this and it's not familiar to me. Can someone point me to the database page for it? I searched 'mexican sage' and came up with a different plant.

Ditto to what @Lestv and @Fleur569 said about looking like purple pussy willows. My first thought, though was 'Hmm. That's really unusual. Could it be a purple pussy willow or a relative? Is there even such a thing?'

Mexican sage, eh? Very interesting.

Great picture!

@plantmanager,

Did you click onto the link (directly below your post) that Leslieray posted of all the salvia leucantha varieties that are in the database? I want to make sure you see them all, since you were asking about it.

Yes, thank you, Marilyn. I want them all! I've been hunting for sages but they aren't very common where I live. I think I'll have to get them all online.
