Salvia muelleri * Royal Purple Autumn Sage

Salvia muelleri looks like a softer version of Salvia greggii with green leaves on a low green shrub. It has typically grown 2.5' tall by the same width.  I love the rich purple blooms.   Salvia muelleri almost always has a few blossoms.  I have not had any of these plants suffer cold damage with temperatures dipping into the low 20°s F. I have grown it in full sun to light shade and it has performed well in both. Plants are much less prone to breakage than Salvia greggii.  Salvia muelleri is a great addition to both the hummingbird garden as well as the butterfly garden.
