Salvia roemeriana (Cedar Sage)

Cedar Sage


Adding sparkle to the shade garden, Salvia roemeriana (Cedar Sage) is a small perennial boasting brilliant spikes, 2-3 in. long (5-7 cm), of crimson red flowers over a long season. Blooming profusely in early spring for a couple of months, then sporadically through summer, the flowers are borne atop a velvety rosette of rounded scallop-edged leaves. Perfect for rocky shaded areas, Cedar Sage is particularly adapted to grow in the shade of Junipers, Cedars, hence the common name. Its flowers are both edible and sweet and can make an attractive garnish. Use Cedar Sage to add crimson color and attractive foliage to shady beds and borders, along paths or as a small-scale ground cover.

  • Grows up to 1-2 ft. tall and wide (30-60 cm). Will occasionally spread by seed and form colonies.
  • Thrives in partial shade in alkaline, dry, well-drained soils. Cedar Sage will need supplemental water during the first growing season. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Easy to grow, fairly pest and disease free, it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds but is deer resistant.
  • After blooming, remove the flower spikes and scatter seeds where you want them to grow.
  • Propagate by seed or cuttings.
  • Native to Texas.
