A dwarf form of the popular Mexican Sage bush that grows to only 2'H. This durable drought tolerant perennial puts on amazing show of velvety purple flower spikes beginning in late summer (just in time for the Hummingbirds) and lasting until frost. Mexican Sage bush is a drought tolerant, sun and heat loving reliable clump forming perennial that is considered deer proof. This tough plant is moderately salt tolerant making it a good choice for coastal plantings. Mexican Sage Bush does best where it has excellent drainage, particularly in winter and mulching can help ensure its hardiness in questionable areas. Salvia leucantha's excellent drought tolerance makes it a good choice for containers and xeriscapes.
