Salvia dorrii - Purple Desert Sage
Salvia dorrii is native to the deserts of California and the West from Arizona to Washington. Good drainage is a must. The red bracts contrast so vibrantly with the blue flowers. It is worth making the conditions work for the Purple Desert Sage. The gray leaves are a plus too. Salvia dorrii grows to about 2 feet tall and wide. Salvia dorrii often grows in areas that get brief snow cover.
