Dara's Choice is a lovely vibrant green sage with blue flowers. A hybrid between Salvia mellifera and Salvia sonomensis. A hardy groundcover, Dara's Choice grows 2 ft tall and 3ft across. Easy to grow and very fast. It is probably a little easier to grow than S.sonomensis in a regular garden. It is very drought tolerant. We neglected it, and it lived. Amazing! No water after planting, none, and it lived. (Do not try
this at home without your fingers crossed and some good rain.)
Mix with Diplacus longiflorus
and Eriogonum fasciculatum foliolosum.
Useful to fill out a landscape for a house that needs to sell. In two-three months it can look landscaped. Here's a native
