A dwarf form of the common Mexican Sage. Long stems of velvety purple flowers crown the silvery green foliage over summer through autumn. Ideal for low maintenance gardening. 90cm H x 1m W. Frost hardy.
Choose a site in full sun in most soil types with good drainage.
Dry tolerant once established but should be given the occasional deep watering during extended periods of heat.
During early spring cut back old foliage stems once new growth begins to appear at the crown.
Feed at this time with an application of slow release fertiliser for best results.
