Made for California. Today you can choose from hundreds of sage relatives, including dozens of native Salvias and tons of new varieties, annuals and perennials, in white, yellow, red, deepest blue and purple. My favorite, Mexican bush sage, has been around a long time — you see it often in California mission gardens. It is easy to grow, needs little water or care, and seems to bloom every day of the year (actually, more like from Presidents Day to Thanksgiving). Grow Mexican sage for a blast of purple in borders, in a row as a loose sort of low hedge, in an herb garden, at the edge of a vegetable garden or in other casual, dryish places. It's kind of sprawly and not a plant for formal situations. Botanical name: Salvia leucanthaUSDA zones: 7 to 9Water requirement: LightLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 3 to 4 feet tall and 3 to 6 feet wide Growing tips: To control size and shape, cut back stems almost to the ground in early spring.
