Many low growing selections of the Black Sage have been made. The 'Green Carpet' Sage is a drought tolerant, fast growing ground cover that likes full sun and little to no summer water. Good drainage is appreciated as well, but this plant (as well as the other Salvias) will tolerate heavy soil if there is a slope to the land to allow water to run off. The deep green foliage and white flower are typical for the Black Sage. A hard pruning after the blossoms fade, usually around June-July, will produce a denser plant.
