Purple Chip Sage
One of the plants exclusively available at the sale will be Purple Chip Sage, or Salvia dorrii var. clokeyi 'Purple Chip." This mat-forming variety of Purple Sage is a small shrub that will produce an abundance of new growth along with a profusion of flowering branches in the spring. The mature, woody branches, have peeling roughened bark, and the leaves are spoon shaped and grayish green. This shrub will perform well in landscapes with nutrient poor soils. 'Purple Chip' prefers full sun and displays blooms larger than the type, variety dorrii. Once established this plant needs very little water to survive.
