(VIBE® Ignition White Sage) Never before have we seen such a pure white among the species to which Jame Sages are related. We love this purity as well as the bright green calyxes supporting the large flowers of Elk White Ice and giving it an overall crisp look.

(VIBE® Ignition White Sage) Never before have we seen such a pure white among the species to which Jame Sages are related. We love this purity as well as the bright green calyxes supporting the large flowers of Ignition White and giving it an overall crisp look.

You'll find whites, brights, pastels and bicolors among the Jame Sage hybrids. This vigorous variety is well adapted to the chill of winter conditions in USDA Zone 7, and has survived in Zone 6 with winter protection. It is part of our Elk Rainbow Series of colorful, dependable plants.

Native to Mexico and the American Southwest, Jame Sages occur in areas where the closely related species of Autumn Sage ( Salvia greggii) and Mountain Sage (Salvia microphylla) meet, such as near the Village of Jame in Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains or in the test gardens of our Northern California farm. This parentage may include other species of sages as well, which is why Jame Sages come in a broad range of sizes.

The foliage of these hybrids can favor any of their parent plants. Elk White Ice has the tiny, smooth, oval-shaped leaves of the Autumn Sage side of its family. It is reasonably heat tolerant and loves full sun in all but the hottest climates, but can take a bit of partial shade. Although drought-resistant, VIBE Ignition White appreciates average watering based on local conditions. Don't forget to give it well-drained soil.

When in bloom, VIBE Ignition White reaches up to 30 inches tall. Mass this upright plant in in a native garden with other, taller Salvias.

This variety was formerly sold as Salvia x 'Elk White Ice'.

Elk Rainbow Sage
A Rainbow of Quality

At Flowers by the Sea, we regularly develop new cultivars such as our hybrid series of Elk Rainbow Sages™, which are varieties of Jame Sage Hybrids (Salvia x jamensis) in a broad array of solids and bicolors ranging from pastels to brights.

The word Elk in the scientific and common names of the Elk Rainbow choices indicates that you are getting a sturdy, colorful, reliable repeat performer.
