Silver Sage Growing and Maintenance Tips

Best grown in an average or dry, well-drained soil, in full sun. They are drought tolerant once established and will not tolerate winter wet. Silver sage is a biennial; foliage develops in the first year, flowers appear in the second. Not a prolific seeder, so it often disappears after the second year.
