A frost sensitive perennial that grows to 4-8ft tall and 3ft wide with gray foliage. It has blue-lavender flowers. The foliage is scented with a sage-lavender odor. A major bee plant. It likes perfect drainage and a little water after established.It needs full sun. It will freeze to ground on cold winters. It seems to be hardy to about 25 F.. The odor is rich and luxurious. The plant has that slate blue-gray look that seems to be so popular. A wonderful plant to try in a hot sunny flower bed that does not get a lot of water. Remember that it grows in desert washes, not up on the dry hillsides. It is not a cactus but grows where you would find a desert willow.
