About

Bold plant with unique flowers for the back or middle of the garden. In warmer climates Jerusalam sage performs as an evergreen shrub, and in colder regions dies back in winter and regrows from the ground each spring. An excellent, easy care plant that is drought tolerant, rabbit and deer resistant and despite its size, does not usually need staking in the garden. Blooms make long-lasting cut flowers.
