A cross between the White and Cleveland Sages, this plant combines the best attributes of both! A vigorous grower to 6 feet high and wide, broad pale gray foliage is topped with wands of lavender flowers. Aromatic, very drought tolerant, and attractive to bees and hummingbirds, as well as providing nutritious seed for quail and other songbirds.
