(Thryce Flowered Sage)  A wonderfly floriferous shrubby species from the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico.  The individual flowers are small, but so numerous as to be uncountable.  The textured foliage makes this a stand out in the garden.

This winter bloomer is tough, handling light frosts with ease.  It is at its best in a warm, sheltered location in well drained soil.  The pastel purple flowers are a true delight.

This species was first described by George Bentham, collecting plants for English gardens in 1844.
