What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Southwestern Garden Style
Natural style includes elements such as gravel paths, adobe and stone walls, timber beams and a range of desert plants. It blends with the surrounding landscape and is about as maintenance free as you can get.Here the gravel edged with cacti, grasses and perennials is reminiscent of a dry streambed ... the idea of water encapsulated in a simple setting.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Native Plant: Cleveland Sage
How to use it. Cleveland sage can be grown in containers, but I've seen it casually massed to best effect. The flowers as well as the foliage of Cleveland sage are fragrant, and will release their scent if brushed up against along a path or planter edge. As one of the largest sages, it needs enough space for it to fill in. Cleveland sage is also a fire-wise plant.Shown: With redhot lantana

Cleveland sage’s size and scent most distinguish it among the salvias; this is one of the larger and more commonly used species. ‘Winnifred Gilman’ is a popular cultivar, noted for its more compact form and perhaps its even more intense flower color and natural scent.
