Which Salvia

CA KateMay 7, 2013

I brought this long-time Salvia from my old garden and have forgotten it's name. Can you help?

It needs at least afternoon shade; gets to be an ever-enlarging circle/mat; the bloom stalk is maybe 10-12 inches.

It is Salvia spathacea, a California native. Commonly called Hummingbird Sage.
