Genus: Salvia Species: clevelandii Variety: Cultivar: Winifred Gilmam Cleveland Sage
Common name(s): Musk Sage ,Cleveland Sage .
Salvia clevelandii ?Winifred Gilman" is an evergreen shrub with flowers lavender to blue. This Cleveland sage is native to dry slopes San Diego County. It likes sun and perfect drainage. The grey-green leaves have intense fragrance. A great hummingbird plant. Cold tolerant to about 10 deg. f.. It has managed to survive lower temperatures here but I had it against a 3' rock wall facing south situated in such a way that the cold flowed over it. Winifred Gilman flowers are stunning. The Salvia clevelandii fragrance carries for 20-50' on a warm night. Do not put it under your bedroom window unless you really love the smell of the wild west (or a herb garden according to your taste). No accounting for tastes, one customer complained that "that plant smelled so BAD' and another who comes by occasionally to beg for a stem or two for the cab of his truck ?cause it made the truck smell real good'. This sage is native in areas of low rainfall and has survived here on four inches of rainfall. It is stable in sand or gravel, fair in loam, unstable in clay. If you live in an area of rainfall greater than 35 inches find a spot of pure sandy gravel. (The trade has this species mislabeled many times. Sometimes a hybrid called 'Allen Chickering' is labeled as this and sometimes this is labeled as 'Allen Chickering'.) 'Winfred Gilman' is a nice form of Cleveland Sage that seems to be a little more garden and frost tolerant. Flower color and scent may even be more pronounced. ( It is not as tough as straight species in places like desert washes tough.) If you're after the flowers but have clay or heavy frosts see Salvia clevelandii X 'Pozo Blue'.
Stachys coccinea Zone 6 The profusion of color it provides is its biggest asset, along with having a tremendous ability to attract hummingbirds. It's also more tolerant of moisture than most Southwestern natives
This is perhaps the best plant for hummingbirds. Of the 40 to 50 sages that bloom in my gardens during the summer and early fall, it is the first visited by hummingbirds and the one they have the most territorial disputes over. Not only is it a long season bloomer, from one month after the last frost to the first frost of autumn, but it forms a dense colony that expands by six inches each year. It grows waist-high in most gardens.
Salvia greggii Zones 7-10 dry
Tecoma stans tropical tree may survive here. Arizona yellow bells (T. stans var. angustata), which comes from the Chihuahuan Desert in Texas and New Mexico, is a 10 ft (3.1 m) deciduous shrub, which is hardy to 10ºF (-12.2ºC) and can be grown as a herbaceous perennial to Zone 7
