Salvia chrysophylla
“Golden Leaf Sage”

This RARE, smaller-sized salvia hailing from Turkey features charming two-lipped lavender and white, bi-color flowers. This hardy cottage garden perennial gets its common name from the hint of gold on the grayish-green textured leaves. Beginning in late Spring, vertical branches with smaller, opposing leaves rise above the main foliage and sprout 1” flowers directly from the upper portions of quadrangular stems, one each from the four corners. Flowering continues well into the Fall. Due to its modest size (20” tall and 18” wide), this evergreen salvia can be tucked into a mixed perennial bed, used in a dry garden or even featured in a decorative container. Plant in full to partial sun in well-drained, neutral to lightly alkaline soil. Prune back to basal clump in late Winter. Deer resistant.
