White Flowered

White Flowered

White flowers are always needed in a garden, and the traditional White Garden - built with only white flowered plants, is still a much used design. There are a few very nice Salvias with white flowers, and we offer them here.


  • Salvia apiana

    (Sacred White Sage) Bees, hummingbirds and spiritual blessings are all connected to this elegant shrubby sage, which is an important herb to indigenous Californians and deserves a place in every salvia garden. Stiff and almost fleshy, its leaves are tight rosettes of brilliant, silvery white.


  • Salvia canariensis alba

    (White Canary Island Sage) This white-flowered variant of Canary Island Sage is equally large and long blooming. It is a beautiful focal point for a Mediterranean-style garden with its cloud-like flower spikes and large fuzzy leaves.


  • Salvia coccinea 'Snow Nymph'

    (Snow Nymph White Tropical Sage) Butterflies, hummingbirds and honeybees enjoy this award winner, which is an outstanding choice for pure white color from June to autumn. This type of Tropical Sage is generally the first to flower for us.


  • Salvia disermas alba

    (White Transvaal Sage) This is the white-flowered form of the herbaceous perennial Transvaal Sage. It grows in partially shaded stream beds and rocky grasslands and is tough yet showy with spikes of large white, pink-tinged flowers from spring to fall. It is a good ground cover or perennial border plant.

  • Salvia dominica

    (Dominican Sage) Native to Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, this candelabra-shaped, perennial sage may have inspired the design of the menorah, (Exodus 37:17). It is a tough, drought-resistant plant with silver-haired foliage and bright white flowers that seem to blaze.


  • Salvia farinacea 'Augusta Duelberg'

    (White Mealy Cup Sage) This Texas native species is one of the mainstays of gardens worldwide. Tidy, easy to grow, hardy, long blooming and undemanding, Mealy Cup Sage belongs in almost any sunny garden. Due to the popularity of the species, the number of varieties is staggering.


  • Salvia greggii 'Teresa'

    (Teresa's Autumn Sage) Powder pink and white bicolor flowers make this sage look like an over-large bridal bouquet with densely leafed, dark green, mounding foliage. This sage appreciates some shade, but can withstand heat and moderate drought.

  • Salvia greggii 'Texas Wedding'

    (Texas Wedding White Autumn Sage) This is our best white-flowered Autumn Sage. It is compact, hardy and blooms abundantly. We love it as a contrast to the generally bright colors of its group. Texas Wedding seems to always be blooming, with massive displays in spring and fall.


  • Salvia haematodes

    (Red Veined Sage) In 1827, John Wilkes referred to Salvia haematodes as "Bloody Sage" in his Encyclopaedia Londinensis, Volume 22. This might seem mysterious when first viewing the sage's upright yet somewhat relaxed spikes of whorled, violet-colored flowers.


  • Salvia leucantha 'Danielle's Dream'

    (Pink Mexican Bush Sage) Although native to Mexico and Central America, this elegant variety of Salvia leucantha was hybridized in South Africa. It is compact, long blooming and profusely covered by soft pink flowers surrounded by velvety white bracts.


  • Salvia leucantha 'White Mischief'

    (White Mischief Mexican Bush Sage) Profuse white blossoms and true white velvety bracts make the flowers of this South African hybrid a lovely choice for a wedding. In our experience, many of the plants sold as White Mischief are not the real thing. This tough, compact, long blooming sage is.


  • Salvia mellifera

    (Black Sage or Honey Sage) One of the most common and fragrant native shrubs in Central California's Coast Ranges, Black Sage is ideal for dry gardens. Admirably adaptable, it tolerates soils ranging from the most marginal to ones that are loamy and provide excellent drainage. It is a survivor.

  • Salvia microphylla 'Hot Lips'

    (Hot Lips Sage) What a winner for fascinating flowers! Hot Lips Sage has solid red, solid white and two-tone combinations all on the same plant and often at the same time. You might say that this shrubby sage is mixed-up, but its confused coloring makes it highly desirable.

  • Salvia patens 'White Trophy'

    (White Trophy Gentian Sage) White Trophy loves partial shade and is the finest white Salvia patens available, with very large flowers that age to pale blue.

  • Salvia pratensis 'Swan Lake'

    (White Meadow Sage) Whorls of pure white flowers shaped like parrot beaks rise on tall spikes from the wrinkly, basal foliage of Salvia pratensis 'Swan Lake'. The large, mid-green leaves have attractively serrated edges.


  • Salvia radula

    (Scrappy African Sage) Although not well known in U.S. nurseries, this fragrant sage with luminous white flowers is highly desirable for hot, sunny areas in USDA Zones 8 to 10. Native to the botanically rich mountains of South Africa, it grows at elevations up to 6,200 feet.

  • Salvia sclarea 'Alba'

    (White Clary Sage) A froth of white blossoms floats over the fuzzy basal foliage of Salvia sclarea 'Alba'. Butterflies enjoy the nectar of this Mediterranean native that tolerates both heat and extreme cold.


  • Salvia sclarea var turkestanica 'Piemont'

    (Italian Clary Sage) Clary Sages are well known for their use in folk remedies, aromatherapy and cosmetics. Glowing purple bracts frame the spectacular white blooms of this cultivar on 5-foot-tall spikes. It is a delight for honeybees, hummingbirds and butterflies.


  • Salvia staminea

    (Iranian Sage)  Mixed in with short perennials that bloom over a wide range of seasons, Salvia staminea makes an attractive contribution to short borders during its summer bloom time. Our strain has dark bracts surrounding pastel white-to-blue-to-lavender flowers. The dark green, branching foliage has oblong to oval-shaped leaves.

  • Salvia tingitana

    (Mauretania Tingitana Sage) Native to Saudi Arabia, this sage gets by on little water. and has a long history of cultivation going back 400 years. It wove throughout various countries in the Middle East and North Africa before arriving in Europe in the 1700s and was first described scientifically in 1777.

  • Salvia x 'Elk Butter Light'

    (Elk Butter Light Jame Sage) "Clear" is how we describe the translucent quality of Elk Butter Light's creamy yellow blossoms, which are supported by bright green calyxes. Unlike the green-tinged flowers of Elk Lemon Light Jame Sage, these blossoms are paler and one pure color.


  • Salvia x 'Elk Buttercup'

    (Elk Buttercup Jame Sage) Red flower buds unfurl into the surprisingly buttery yellow blossoms of Elk Buttercup. Subtly bicolored, the flowers have touches of light pink including fine hairs on the upper lip.


  • Salvia x 'Elk Hot Tamale'

    (Elk Hot Tamale Jame Sage) A blush of neon pink marks the throats of this sage's hot, hot, hot red flowers, which are cupped by dark red calyxes and set against mid-green foliage.


  • Salvia x 'Elk Lemon Light'

    (Elk Lemon Light Jame Sage) We are proud to offer this luminescent, pure yellow Salvia x jamensis -- a color breakthrough from our own breeding program. The bright, light blossoms cool the landscape similar to white flowers, but with colorful impact.


  • Salvia x 'Elk Tomato Red'

    (Elk Tomato Red Jame Sage) As its name indicates, the flowers of this Elk Rainbow Sage are a deep red-orange. The calyxes supporting the large blossoms are bright green and burgundy. Many Jame Sages are pastels and bicolors, but Elk Tomato Red is an excellent example of a super-bright variety.


  • Salvia x 'Out of the Mist'

    (Out of the Mist Chinese Sage) Out of the Mist is a hybrid of unknown origin discovered by Margaret Mason, a nurserywoman and Salvia specialist from North Wales. Pale and ethereal, it seems to glow in the shade. Hints of yellow and blue add complexity to its white flowers.

  • Salvia x 'Waverly'

    (Waverly Sage) A pale pink to lavender blush adds delicate color to the white flowers of Waverly Sage, which are supported by plum-colored calyxes. Its mid-green leaves are lance shaped and veined.


  • Salvia x sylvestris 'Schneehugel'

    (Schneehugel Meadow Sage) When it blooms from summer to fall, Salvia x sylvestris ‘Schneehügel’ looks like its covered in snow. Schneehügel, roughly which means “snow mound” in German. This perennial sage’s upright flower spikes are dense with white blossoms.
