Salvia Microphylla Porthos is a deciduous perennial baby sage with aromatic leaves and rich red purple flowers that bloom throughout summer. It suits sunny flower beds and plant containers.

Salvia Microphylla is native to south-eastern Arizona and the mountains of Mexico. Saliva is easily crossed and the variety Porthos is a cultivar of the Salvia microphylla Royal Bumble and Salvia grahamii Violette. This baby sage has small aromatic leaves on sturdy dark green stems that grow upright. In late summer and into autumn rich red-purple flowers with dark purple petioles bloom on long spikes held above the foliage. In good conditions Baby Sage can flower for six months.

This is an excellent choice for dry flower borders and hot sunny spots as it’s drought resistant once established.
