The Dominican Sage is a great addition to herbal and dry gardens. It tolerates dry clay, even in shade. It blooms as winter warms up into summer, but its interesting, fragrant foliage offers interest year round.

Its blooms are white and pale yellow, the same size and shape as Sardinian Sage but with no rose or lavender hues. An attractive plant for a short border or the front of a planting to add interest.
