In perennial borders and wildflower meadows, Mealy blue sage thrives. The foliage has a pleasant fragrance and is resistant to deer. Remove the old flower stems as new basal foliage emerges to keep the plants lush. Throughout the season, it will bloom on and off. The nectar is enjoyed by butterflies and hummingbirds. In beds, borders, and naturalized areas, Mealy blue sage creates a pleasing lump of color.
