Plant Description

The result of a cross between two California native salvias (S. leucophylla x S. clevelandii), Pozo Blue Musk Sage was discovered by Bert Wilson of Las Pilitus nursery in Santa Margarita, CA. Its blue-lavender flowers contrast wonderfully with its silvery gray foliage. Everyone here at the nursery loves the sweet fragrance from the leaves of this saliva. You detect it by just walking by. This butterfly and hummingbird attracting plant will only survive our Oklahoma winters if given a well-drained soil in a protected location. Pozo means well (water well) in Spanish. This plant was named after the small stagecoach town of Pozo, CA near the nursery where it was found. The site is home to the famous Pozo Saloon that is still thriving today after being established in 1858.
