Jerusalem Sage

Every few weeks, I go to my neighborhood home improvement store, mostly to look for the latest plants. Today was a lucky day for me: I found beautiful plants from the clearance rack, among them 2 Jerusalem sage plants. They are healthy and I already had a backyard vacancy in mind when I saw them. Earlier this year, my beloved white iceberg rose succumbed to one too many gophers who became quite fond of its roots.

These two natives of the Mediterranean and elsewhere will invigorate that corner of the garden and have already stirred up quite a bit of interest among butterflies shortly after I planted them. This is drought-resistant once established as well, practical and lovely! If they thrive in my garden, I will likely propagate them by taking some softwood cuttings in the summer. So very pleased that these fuzzy-leafed beauties are now part of my garden!
