Salvia sonomensis

Salvia sonomensis
Sonoma sage

Sonoma sage is a wonderful native perennial and can be a serviceable groundcover if its needs are met. Good drainage is a must and it performs best with light shade. Water plants to get established-very drought tolerant, will NOT tolerate regular summer water. Mat forming, flowers rise to about 6 inches above the foliage and are lavender-blue. Deer resistant. This species attracts bees and hummingbirds.
