Description

Among the many garden hybrids involving California natives, some have proven remarkably hardy. Salvia ‘Bee’s Bliss’ is one of these. It is considered a hybrid involving Salvia sonomensis, and fortunately is a good deal easier to work with than this parent. ‘Bee’s Bliss’ grows quite quickly as a low ground cover with gray-green leaves. It will fill an eight foot diameter area in no time. The lavender flowers are plentiful and long lasting, attracting a steady swarm of pollinators. ‘Bee’s Bliss’ will thrive in a variety of soil types and will keep an acceptable appearance with no summer water. Regular watering - especially overhead watering - can be harmful. Plant this sage wherever a dry-loving ground cover is needed in a sunny spot. I have my patch planted under an island oak, Quercus tomentella, since oaks resent summer water.
