Salvia chamaedryoides (Lamiaceae)
Blue Oak Sage
This Mexican charmer wafts summertime air with sagey scents from soft, gray-green, tiny leaves. Strongly contrasting periwinkle blue, lipped flowers are eye-catching in the garden in sunny, well-drained locations. It has a squatty, horizontal form of 1' tall by 18" wide. Place it with Delosperma cooperi or let it weave into Artemisia 'Valerie Finnis' for an appealing drought-tolerant duo. Native to Mexico.
