Bethel Sage

Salvia involucrata ‘Bethellii’ is a bushy, upright shrub that grows 1.5m in both height and width. Its common name is Bethel Sage and is alike many other sages, it is a perennial, easy to grow and it grows flowers in clusters. The flowers, pink in colour, grow from summer to early winter.

It requires full sun and it helps to have soil constantly moist. The plant dies down during the winter, making it best to cut back the plant during the winter and allow it to regrow back to size in spring. This particular sage can tolerate a light frost and the pH level should be mildly acidic to mildly alkaline.
