Mohave Sage

(Salvia mohavensis)

Mojave sage  is a species of sage endemic to the Mojave Desert. It is a low rounded shrub growing to 1 m tall with small opposite evergreen leaves 1.5–2 cm long, which are dark green or may appear nearly gray due to a covering of fine white hairs. The 2 cm long flowers are pale blue with protruding stamens, and occur in head-like whorls that occur singly at the tip of the stem. It blooms from April to June.
