Salvia sinaloensis (Sinaloan Blue Sage) - Native to Mexico this Salvia is a compact herbaceous perennial that grows to 1 foot tall and spreads slowly by stolons. The leaves are narrow and tinted with purple. The small dark purple-blue flowers with a white spot on the lower lip bloom in late spring through fall. The dark calyx remains an attractive feature after the flowers are spent. This Salvia requires average watering and although it will take partial shade it should be planted in full sun along the coast to maintain dark foliage.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Salvia sinaloensis.
