Salvia greggii White

Salvia greggii White


Description: Salvia greggii 'White' is a small, woody shrub that typically grows up to 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 0.9 meters) in height and spread. It features aromatic, gray-green foliage with lance-shaped leaves that provide an attractive backdrop to its abundant white flowers. The tubular-shaped flowers bloom in clusters from spring to fall, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to the garden. 'White' refers to the color of its flowers, which are a pure, pristine white.

Best Growing Zones: Salvia greggii 'White' is native to the southwestern United States and Mexico, where it thrives in hot, dry climates. It is well-suited to USDA hardiness zones 7 to 10, although it can be grown as an annual in cooler climates. It prefers full sun but can tolerate some light shade, especially in hotter regions. It is drought-tolerant once established and prefers well-drained soil.

Soil Requirements: This variety of Salvia greggii prefers well-drained soil with moderate fertility. It can tolerate a variety of soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soil, as long as it's not overly wet or waterlogged. Amending the soil with organic matter, such as compost, can improve soil structure and fertility, promoting healthy growth and flowering.

Maintenance: Salvia greggii 'White' is relatively low-maintenance and requires minimal care once established. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or damaged growth and promote a more compact, tidy appearance. Deadheading spent flowers can encourage additional blooming throughout the growing season and prevent self-seeding. Regular watering is important, especially during periods of drought, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
