Common name
This is the non-scientific name used for a plant. A plant may have several common names, depending on the gardener's location. To further confuse the matter, a common name may be shared by several completely different plants. At Flowers by the Sea, we rely on the scientific name to identify our plants and avoid confusion.

Exposure
This is the average amount of sunlight that a plant needs to thrive.

Plants may tolerate more sunlight in cooler climates and need afternoon shade in extremely hot climates.

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.
Rich and well drained

(Jean's Jewel Sage) An entirely new color in the Salvia guaranitica group, this chance hybrid with violet-pink blossoms was discovered by Kathleen Navarez at Cabrillo College in Aptos, California. It is compact, freely flowering and spreads gently via rhizomes.

Jean's Jewel often starts its flowering cycle in June and blooms in cycles until hard frosts send it into winter dormancy. Butterflies and hummingbirds are equally appreciative of its charms.

We have found that the leaves of this variety are more sensitive than other Anise-Scented Sages.  Cool, moist conditions can lead to leaf spotting, so most plants exhibit some leaf blemish.  Despite less than perfect foliage, it's worth growing just for the flower color.

This unique variety was a 2016 introduction.
