Tall Western Sage (Artemisia tridentata)

Tall Western Sage (Artemisia tridentata)


Native sage. This is not the White Sage (Salvia apiana, see ‘annuals’ page) of smudge bundles, however, it is wonderful in smudge bundles and is extremely hardy,and drought tolerant. This is the sage that is growing all around the Western Slope. Peeling bark on the branches and fragrant blue green leaves give rise to insignificant (unless you are a bee) flowers in late summer/autumn. This is another very important late summer bee foraging plant. Full sun #5 pots

Grows 2’-10’ depending on exposure and water

Extraordinarily drought tolerant

Bee forage




Oh Yes!
