Plant of the Week: Purple Sage

I saw this plant for the first time in my friend Katie’s backyard, and now I’m seeing it everywhere! Salvia officinalis ”Purpurea” or “Purple Sage” is an ideal border plant for the Rocky Mountain climate. It thrives in dry climates, needs little maintenance, provides a strong fragrance, has a long blooming season, and its purple and green foliage make it a complimentary plant to many others.
