This Sage relative is a showy member of local chaparral hillsides. Pungent smelling, broad green leaves are topped with pale lavender blossoms in mid to late spring. If kept completely dry the plant will drop its leaves in midsummer; water every few weeks will keep it green through to fall. Nice combined with Moneyflowers and Sages. Prune for shaping in the winter months to encourage a full and healthy specimen.
