Plant Crush: Silver Sage (Salvia Argentea)
Last night, I started to make good on my promise to clean out overly aggressive groundcovers (yes, that would be YOU, golden marjoram!) and found a flagstone that I had forgotten... and enough space to plant two of my newly acquired silver sages:
I have long had a plant crush on silver sage. What's not to like? It has amazing color, large leaves covered with white fuzzy texture... it's just an amazing accent plant.
I've found it only once before, in small, sickly pots in the herb section of a random garden center. I took a chance on it anyway, but the plants never did recover. These 4" pots that we got in at "my" garden center last week are much healthier from the get-go, so I'm hopeful that they will take this time.
More photos to follow, as these guys settle in--and as I distribute the better behaved 'Chubby Fingers' sedum around them. (And figure out where #3 will live!)
