Salvia reptans West Texas Form (Cobalt Sage)

Salvia reptans West Texas Form (Cobalt Sage)
SunZone: 5b-9, at least 36" tall Origin: USA, Mexico

Open House/Web-Only! (aka: Salvia leptophylla) Guess what?...another truly fabulous native salvia that seems to have completely missed cultivation! This easy-to-grow Texas native is a close relative of S. pitcheri, but, in my opinion, is a much nicer plant. Normally a lax plant, this upright form was collected by Pat McNeal of Texas in the Davis Mountains in Davis Co., Texas, at 4,000'. The needle-thin green leaves adorn the 3' tall stems, and in September it bursts forth at the tips with vivid, dark cobalt-blue flowers. Native to the Trans-Pecos region, it is found in dry, gravelly, mountainous washes. Despite this affinity for well-drained soils, it has performed marvelously in the muggy Southeast. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
