The leaves are similar to pinapple sage but some silver in the dark green color. The flower is smillar to the Mexican sage but narrower and purple-black. The plant can be grown from cuttings. In my zone 8b it gets full sun but I am told it can be grown in part shade. It needs well drained soil.

Plant Delights says this garden hybrid was discovered in South Carolina by Frances Parker, who named the seedling for her grandson Anthony; a cross between S. leucantha 'Midnight' and S. elegans.
