White Sage

Impressive wands of white flowers with tiny mauve spots can rise up to 180cm above the plant in spring with each spike bearing hundreds of blossoms. A favourite with birds and bees, this sun-loving, dry-tolerant perennial makes a strong focal point in any water-wise garden, even at night when its silvery appearance is reflective by moon or garden lighting. Useful for stabilising banks and slopes.

How to grow

Requires free-draining, fairly dry soils and full sun. Drought-tolerant once established, excessive watering in dry months will cause plants to die. Particularly useful on banks and slopes or for stabilising areas subject to erosion. Remove spent flower stalks after flowering and trim to shape as required.
