From Mexico. This evergreen perennial is not always winter hardy for us but it is so beautiful in bloom that we replace it when it is lost. It spreads to form colonies by underground roots and so needs a good root run. The silvery gray foliage of Salvia chamaecryiodes is a great foil for the decidedly blue flowers in summer. Pruning spent bloom spikes encourages new plant growth and continued flowering.
