Salvia leucantha, commonly called Woolly Sage or Mexican bush sage, is an evergreen shrubby perennial that is native to subtropical and tropical conifer forests, seen mostly in Central America and Mexico. This sage is most noted for producing very attractive blooms of white and purple flowers. Blooms appear in dense, arching spikes that extend above the foliage. Flowers are attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and most pollinators. They are also a fun addition to any backyard bouquet! This is a great shrub for garden borders or pollinator focused garden. Woolly sage likes plenty of sun, can be grown in containers and is a fast growing, very low maintenance shrub.
