Salvia argentea

Silver Sage, Silver Salvia, Hobbits Foot
Family: Lamiaceae
Origin: Mediterranean
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This biennial or short-lived perennial is grown for its massive, downy-silver rosettes of foliage. Plants want to flower in mid to late summer, but the clusters of white and green bracts are not outstanding, and, if allowed to develop, they cause the foliage to deteriorate badly. If flower stalks are allowed to remain on plant, eventually new leaves will form at the base, thus turning this biennial into a perennial.
