Salvia spathacea Las Pilitas
Las Pilitas Hummingbird Sage.
A Hummingbird Sage from the Las Pilitas area that was found growing under chamise (Adenostoma fasciculatum) on a south-facing slope where there are winter springs and summer heat. Even though the exposure is south-facing this hummingbird sage still wants part shade. The site gets very wet in winter, almost straight red mud,and becomes barbecued bricks in summer. The plant is very low, the lowest hummingbird sage we've seen, with a flower spike appearing on a stem amongst the leaves. Our mother plant has been growing under Ghostly Manzanita for 20 years or more. Here's a native
sage page where you can see all the Salvias of California.
