Salvia chamaedryoides: Germander sage

Image

Salvia chamaedryoides, or Germander sage, is an evergreen perennial native to the high desert [2100–2800 m elevation] of the Sierra Madre Oriental range in Mexico. Its name comes from sharing the running rootstock typical of Teucrium chamaedrys [Wall germander]. Spreading freely, it reaches a height of 60 cm when in bloom, with small grey evergreen foliage. The flowers are blue, appearing sporadically throughout the growing season, with peaks of bloom in early summer and autumn.
