(Gray Roseleaf Sage) The University of California at Berkeley developed this hybrid from Karwinskii's Sage (Salvia karwinskii) and a variety of Roseleaf Sage (Salvia involucrata v. puberula) collected in Mexico by North Carolina nurseryman Richard Dufresne.

On the Northern California coast, this sage begins blooming in early fall and continues through early spring until we perform annual pruning. The flower spikes are up to 2 feet long and covered with dozens of tubular magenta blossoms 2 to 3 inches long. They are a staple in our winter cut-flower bouquets.

This plant combines the strong points of both parents and, similar to both species, is adaptable to full sun and partial shade. The pairing has resulted, in part, in lush, greyish foliage. Gray Roseleaf Sage is a good choice for screens, shrubby borders and background planting.

Hummingbirds and humans highly recommend this sage, but deer do not.
