(Roseleaf Sage) A glorious bloomer, Roseleaf Sage starts producing hot pink blossoms in late summer and continues into spring -- growing more spectacular every day -- unless cut down to the ground by hard frost.

In the hottest climates, Roseleaf Sage requires a bit of shade. It appreciates rich soil and regular watering. This is the largest variety of the species that we cultivate. Growing up to 6 feet or more tall and 4 feet wide, it makes a fine screen or background planting, such as at the back of borders.

Use this sage where you want a bold, strong statement.  We like to pair it with Salvia mexicana varieties for contrasting color and foliage.  This is one of the most important nectar sources for the late season hummingbird migrations.
