Using Salvia Plants in a Desert Landscape

I was going to call this blog post “Plant It…Don’t Smoke It.”  Seems like salvia has been getting more press for being smoked than planted lately.

It’s still a great desert garden plant.  Did you know that it’s the largest genus of

Salvia apianaplants in the mint family?  It comes in many colors and sizes.  There’s a white variety (Salvia apiana) that does well in full sun and well drained soil.

 Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha) is one of my favorite salvias.  It has long light purple stalks of flowers and is taller than some other salvia plants.  This salvia does go dormant during the winter and  requires more trimming back in the spring than some other salvias.

There’s also a Mexican Blue  Sage (Salvia chamaedryoides) and Chapparal Sage (Salvia clevelandii) which is another one of my favorite salvias.

Salvia plants attract hummingbirds and some bees.  And, cialis buy  many of them are fragrant.  They make a good container plant that can be contrasted with other container plants for an interesting look in your garden.
