Salvia clevelandii ‘Pozo Blue’

Pozo Blue sage

‘Pozo Blue’ is an evergreen shrub that can grow to about 6′ tall with a spread of about 8′, but can be kept smaller.

Perfect plant as a colorful backdrop or a stand-alone accent when mixed with smaller forbs. It is a favorite of hummingbirds.

In spring, expect a prolific burst of purple-blue blooms along spikes. This sage wants full sun, and is drought tolerant when established.

Cultivars such as this are horticultural selections and hybrids, not part of the native ecology but work beautifully in the garden.
