This is the non-scientific name used for a plant. A plant may have several common names, depending on the gardener's location. To further confuse the matter, a common name may be shared by several completely different plants. At Flowers by the Sea, we rely on the scientific name to identify our plants and avoid confusion.

Exposure
This is the average amount of sunlight that a plant needs to thrive. Generally, full sun exposure is 6 or more hours of direct sun daily while partial shade is less than 4 hours of sun or dappled shade all day. Plants may tolerate more sunlight in cooler climates and need afternoon shade in extremely hot climates.

Soil type
This is the kind of soil that a plant needs to thrive. Most plants require a well-drained soil that allows the water to soak into the soil without becoming soggy. Sandy and clay soils can be improved by digging in compost to improve drainage.
Well drained
Water needs

Ratings & Reviews
(Corrugated Sage) Dense, purple-blue whorls of flowers complement the somewhat linear, deeply textured -- or corrugated -- dark green leaves with cottony undersides. This evergreen is a handsome native of the Ecuadorian Andes Mountains. Corrugated Sage grows quickly and easily up to 6 feet tall and wide. It needs full sun, well-drained soil and regular water to stay in nearly continuous bloom and look best. Occasional pruning of the growing tips or container planting helps restrict the shrub's growth to about 2 to 3 feet tall and wide. We enjoy contrasting this plant's rounded, dense form with taller, airier sages, such as Salvia guaranitica 'Purple Majesty'. In addition to planting it in decorative containers, we highly recommend using this plant in shrub borders and moist woodland-style gardens.
