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.
Full sun
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

Ratings & Reviews
(Rosebud Hybrid Sage) Cloud forest natives from Southern Mexico often have lush blossoms. That's true of the magenta pink flowers of Salvia puberula x univerticillata, which bloom from fall into winter.

This plant is a hybrid of two parents with fuzzy blossoms -- the red flowered S. univerticillata and the magenta pink S. puberula, which is so hairy that it is commonly called Tarantula Sage. So it isn't surprising that the foliage as well as the flowers of Rosebud Hybrid Sage are fuzzy.

Similar to many other cloud forest species, this sage tolerates the cooler winters of USDA Zone 7. Plant it in well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade and provide average watering based on local conditions.

Due to its height and generous spread, Rosebud Hybrid Sage forms an effective screen. It is also attractive in shrubby borders and provides lovely stems for flower arrangements. Butterflies and hummingbirds love its nectar.
