(Yugoslavian Cut Leaf Sage) This is a rare Baltic steppe plant that grows beautifully in sunny locations with little water and excellent drainage. It is endemic to a the Orlova Brdo region of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Kosovo and Serbia border the FYRM, which adopted its lengthy name to avoid confusion with the Macedonian states of Greece.

The fuzzy, pale blue-to-violet flowers of Yugoslavian Cut Leaf Sage hang upside down. In the right light, their fuzziness gives them a halo-like look. They are cupped by rosy green calyxes and accented by two kinds of mid-green foliage.

The basal leaves of Salvia jurisicii are ovate and scalloped. Whorls of deeply lobed, needle-shaped leaves punctuate the flower stems, giving the plant a feathery look from a distance.

This clump-forming, petite perennial tolerates heat, cold and drought while also discouraging hungry deer. It thrives in rock gardens as well as containers with gravelly soil.
