(aka: Salvia nipponica v. glabrescens) Salvia glabrescens 'Elk Yellow & Purple' is a unique yellow flowered form of the normally pink-flowered Japanese forest sage from Kermit Carter of Flowers by the Sea. The small 18" tall clumps of glossy, dark green, arrow-shaped leaves are topped starting in September/October with a floriferous show of lovely spikes of light yellow flowers with tiny dark purple flecks...truly stunning! The clumps expand slowly, and can eventually reach 7' in width. While Salvia glabrescens can take an hour or two of morning sun, it needs shade the rest of the day and moist, organic soils are best...very cool!
