Autumn Sapphire sage Salvia reptans \\\'P016S\\\' Plant Select
Commonly known as West Texas grass sage, the species S. reptans blooms very late in the season on plants up to 4' tall in the garden. After years of trials and selections, this superior form was chosen for introduction for its compact and consistent growth habit. Glossy green, willowy leaves all season long are topped with clouds of small, sapphire-blue flowers through autumn. Pollinator-friendly, this late-blooming native provides a rich nectar source when many other flowers have faded. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Very low maintenance. Plants will stay most compact with little water and in well-drained soils.
