Description: With eye-catching silver foliage and a spreading habit this sage is well suited to large meadow plantings. The fall tints the silvery leaves of sages to pinky/orange which is very pretty. The aromatic foliage is its main interest and it is used to make smudges. This sage is a good choice for hard to grow sites due to its aggressive nature.

Found in Nature: Dry open sites, sunny meadows and roadside ditches.

Distribution: Common - Prairies and Parklands
