Salvia chamelaeagnea is a semi-hardy, evergreen, small to medium sized shrub with light green leaves that make a contrast with the darker green leaves of other shrubs. Spikes of blue and white flowers that are borne throughout the summer attract nectar-feeding birds to the garden.
It is an attractive, easy plant to grow in well-drained soil with lots of compost for full sun or semi-shade areas. Although it is not a Grassland specie, it does well on the Highveld. Plant in a protected spot.
