Salvia canariensis var. candidissima
(Canary Island sage). A fast-growing and very striking rounded shrub with arrow-shaped leaves typical of the species, but in this case every part of the plant is covered in dense silver hairs, softly furry to touch. From late summer through to autumn it covers itself in rose pink flowers set off further by the bright pinky-purple calyces. Very heat and drought tolerant, this shrub loves hot, dry areas in full sun. Cut back after flowering to new growth. 1.2-1.5m H x 1.2-1.5m W. 1 litre pot.
