Salvia leucantha is a fast-growing, hardy shrub that features upright stems covered with woolly white hairs and narrow, grey-green leaves with short hairs. Beautiful and abundant soft purple flowers appear on long branch tips with white petals. These very distinctive flowers appear almost year-round and especially between spring through fall. The attractive flowers can be cut and used in arrangements or dried for use later. This Salvia prefers full sun to light shade with only occasional water. It also performs best when older flowers are cut back annually to encourage more upright growth and a more controlled appearance. Some of our most popular varieties of Salvia leucantha include ‘Midnight’, ‘Santa Barbara’, and ‘White Mischief’.
