Salvia karwinskii ~ Karwinski's Sage

Salvia karwinskii is a large sage from the mountains of Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador.  Salvia karwinskii grows on the margins of pine and oak forests at elevations from 4,000-8,000 feet.  It seems to grow best in sun at the coast and light shade in the inland valleys.  The large gray-white leaves were the first thing that I noticed.  The flowers can be pink or red. In our area the pink is the only one that I have seen.  It has survived into the low 20's in our area.  Expect your Salvia karwinskii to grow 6 to 10 feet tall and to about half of that width.
