A little annual sage that doesn't look like a sage. Not much scent but nice 1 inch flowers on a 1-2 foot plant. Native on the south slopes on rock or gravel. Chia grows commonly on disturbed soil. But highly variable, can grow in clay, in the desert grows only a few inches high. Here's a native sage page where you can see all the sages of California.
