(Kashmir Sage) This native to Pakistan and Nepal is common in the wild, but rare in cultivation.  The handsome rosette of wooly leaves give way in the late spring to tall flower scapes featuring delicately colored lilac-blue flowers with bright green hairy bracts.

Found at elevations of 5,000 to 9,000 feet, this is no stranger to stressful conditions.  It does best with rich, well drained  soil and ample water, but will survive with far less than ideal conditions.  The flowers are well displayed on a branching inflorescence, and are quite long lasting.

A wonderful addition to the mixed border or as an eye-catching centerpiece to a container.

This is an important medicinal herb in the traditional medicine where it grows.
