Info

Bee's Bliss has green/gray foliage that reaches 2 feet tall and spreads 6-8 feet, forming a broad mound. This low-growing sage is a showy perennial perfect for a bank cover or for a hot, sunny bed. Spring brings lavender flowers that attract many pollinators and hummingbirds. Put on a slope or anywhere that has great drainage, since like many sages it doesn't like wet roots. Cultivars such as this are horticultural selections and hybrids, not part of the native ecology but work beautifully in the garden. Attracts native bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Deer resistant. Hybrid of Salvia leucophylla either Salvia clevelandii or Salvia sonomensis. Introduced in 1989 by Roger Raiche at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden.
