(aka: Salvia nipponica v. glabrescens) Salvia 'Momobana' is a pink-flowered selection of the little-known hairless perennial Japanese sage, which hails from the steep mountainous forests of Central Honshu. The small 18" tall x 18" wide clumps of glossy, dark green, arrow-shaped leaves are topped starting in October with lovely spikes of hot pink flowers. 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!
