Salvia apiana

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Asterids Lamiales Lamiaceae Salvia

White sage. One of the few sages (or mints) with a round rather than a square stem.

First observed blooming in June.

All over our trails, but not near water.

Hybridizes with S. mellifera (black sage) and S. leucophylla (purple sage)


Normally, white sage does not form flower whorls as other sages do. This one does. I presume it is a hybrid.
