Lepechinia hastata Lepechinia hastata

Heat & drought tolerant, evergreen & amazingly hardy (to 0°F), this unusual & easy to grow Salvia relative puts a stunning display from August thru October, just when your garden may be sliding into the blahs. Plentiful, showy, 12” upright & open spikes of voluptuous deep magenta-rose create a cloud of bloom 3’ across above silvery, mint-scented, ground-covering foliage. Hummingbird favorite! Happy in poor soil with good drainage. Cut back in Winter. To 4’ high. It prefers full sun but can take a bit of shade.
