What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Iranian Wood Sage
Here we see Iranian wood sage in a raised planter design by Piet Oudolf, alongside Sea Holly (Eryngium spp) — both favorites of the beautifully untamed bouquet or garden.Distinguishing traits. Distinct magenta spikes emerge in late spring and continue to bloom throughout summer and into fall. Projecting above mounding leaves, they are the first features of the plant to catch the eye. But let's not forget about the foliage. Fuzzy, green sage-like leaves emit a rich fragrance that is enhanced by heat and sun exposure. The evergreen leaves are vibrant yet act as a suitable backdrop to the floral spectacle that characterizes the plant. How to use it. When planted en masse these plants create a billowy sea of pink and green. Architectural yet soft, they blow nicely in the wind and produce the perfect "undesigned" garden effect. Iranian wood sage grows well in containers and provides profile diversity for a dynamic design. Line a path or fill a rock garden.

Plant Iranian wood sage in full sun — partial afternoon shade will be a benefit in extremely hot climates. While it can grow in soil conditions that range from rocky to average or even somewhat moist, be sure the soil is quick draining. This plant suffers if overwatered.

Distinguishing traits. Distinct magenta spikes emerge in late spring and continue to bloom throughout summer and into fall. Projecting above mounding leaves, they are the first features of the plant to catch the eye. But let's not forget about the foliage. Fuzzy, green sage-like leaves emit a rich fragrance that is enhanced by heat and sun exposure. The evergreen leaves are vibrant yet act as a suitable backdrop to the floral spectacle that characterizes the plant. How to use it. When planted en masse these plants create a billowy sea of pink and green. Architectural yet soft, they blow nicely in the wind and produce the perfect "undesigned" garden effect.
