Salvia engelmannii is another of those wonderful salvias that is strangely missing from the mainstream nursery trade. S. engelmannii hails from only 17 counties in Texas...the equivalent of three normal US states, and forms an attractive deciduous clump of light green leaves 1' tall x 1' wide. The clump is topped in June with short spikes of light blue-lavender flowers. We have found this to be a superb rock garden plant and although we have found S. engelmannii easy to grow, good drainage is very important.
