Canary Island sage

Large and robust shrubby sage with arrow shaped leaves covered in white woolly hairs, growing 5 ft or more tall and wide. Dramatic flower displays of lavender-pink blossoms set among deeper colored calyces entice bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. The striking display seems to go on for months, as after the petals fall the colorful calyces persist, extending the show. Easy to grow in full sun with good drainage. Drought tolerant, but additional water will result in a larger plant. Cut back in late winter to encourage a shapely shrub. Hardy to around 15 degrees. Deer resistant.
