Salvia funerea. Death Valley Sage grows in the Eastern Mojave Desert from about the Old Woman Mountains through the mountains surrounding Death valley and into Southern Nevada. This Sage is something I doubt we'll ever grow and it's conditions are very restrictive. Few of you have limestone cliffs that stay dry all year, or alkaline desert washes that have limestone for the gravel. So enjoy our photos but realize you can't have everything.
Death Valley is glorious in their spring and warrants a visit if you've not been there. Send your annoying relatives in August and you go in April.
