Pollinator Power Plant for April 2017

on

This hybrid of Salvia leucophylla x S. clevelandii or S. sonomensis is one of those ‘native’s’ developed in a Botanic Garden.  Growing 2 feet high and 5 feet wide, this low ground cover feeds bees and butterflies as well as receiving occasional visits from hummingbirds. Expect blooms of lavender whorls from Spring into Winter.  Extremely drought tolerant (just water to establish) and cold hardy to 18 F., what is there to not like about this beneficial plant?
