Native to California, this species is rarely grown in gardens -- though it deserves to be. It's wonderfully heat and drought tolerant, bearing clusters of lavender-purple flowers all summer and fall over evergreen silvery foliage. Name: Salvia pachyphylla Size: To 3 feet tall and wide Zones: 6-9 Grow it with: Delicate white gaura adds a graceful texture next to any salvia -- including this one.

Drought resistant Salvia pachyphylla 'Mojave Sage' offers beautiful pink blooms that look good well into fall. Even when not in bloom, its gray-green foliage is lovely. Like other salvias, it attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
