Salvia Pozo Blue - Grey Musk Sage

Salvia Pozo Blue is a hybrid between Salvia clevelandii and Salvia leucophylla and has many of the best attributes of both. Salvia Pozo Blue is more compact than Salvia Allen Chickering and grows to 3-4 feet tall in our gardens and 6 feet wide. The Salvia Pozo Blue is quite fragrant and has grey-green foliage yielding a descriptive Grey Musk Sage common name. The lavender blue flowers come on in late Winter and continue into Spring. Salvia Pozo Blue should be grown in full sun with good drainage. The Grey Musk Sage is quite drought tolerant once established. Salvia Pozo Blue is a great nectar source for the Mournful Duskywing, California Dogface Butterfly, Cloudless Sulfur, Sara Orangetip, Umber Skipper Butterfly, White Checkered Skipper, and the Northern White Skipper and is a nice addition to the Butterfly Garden. Salvia Pozo Blue is Winter hardy into the low 20° F.
