Suggestions for Low Growing types Needed
We moved into our property last June. It was first a foreclosure, then a short sale, and had been neglected for years!
1.5 acres of pure overgrown mess. You probably have seen homes on the sides of hills dotted with boulders and native growth. That's what we have.
So something we thought was a weed had gorgeous 3' spikes of purple flowers all summer long. Today, I realized it's Salvia AKA Sage!
After reading about sage, I realize it can be divided, and we have many places here to put chunks of this drought tolerant beauty!
We have a garden space on top of a huge boulder. There are areas that have plants, and there is a nice little concrete patio with steps up to it. We put two fig trees up there, and they will create some shade. But the whole space slopes down and can be seen from the street. It gets full sun all day, and we can sprinkle it if necessary. It currently gets no water. Weeds have no problem, but granite is decomposing and it would be nice to have something to hold it up!
I'd like to mix salvia's there, but not the massive large ones on the frontage. Any suggestions for red, white, pink, purple, 1' - 2' types?
