Jame Sage, 'California Sunset'

Salvia x jamensis 'California Sunset'

Family Lamiaceae

species native to ne. Mexico

my garden in Bisbee, Arizona (USDA Zone 8b)

 

Many of the perennial semi-woody sages collected near the town of Jame, Coahuila in northeastern Mexico show a mix of characteristics of the desert-adapted S. greggii and the mountain-dwelling S. microphylla. This cultivar has foliage similar to S. greggii but reportedly tolerates more moisture and shade than that species.
