Common Name Nettle-leaved Sage Variety 'N3 Midnight Blue'
Regional Names  
Botanical Name Salvia urticifolia
Description Nettle-leaved Sage is unfamiliar to most only because it is not a large species nor has large flowers and is never offered. A species that matures to 1'High x 2'Wide and grows in dry conditions, it is the perfect plant for xeric landscapes. It produces 10-20 flowering spikes that arch up and outwards carry hundreds of small very dark royal blue flowers. Never needs watering and fits well in small places. It does not reseed freely. Blooms in late April to early May.
Notes
As always with this species, quantities are limited.
