(Chihuahuan Rain Sage, Chihuahuan Sage)

Unlike its silver leaf cousins from Texas, the tiny leaves and stems of this Chihuahuan sage are a far more lush green color, yet plants retain a high degree of heat and drought resistance. It is a native of middle elevation foothills throughout much of northern Mexico, preferring sloping limestone soils of sandy gravelly texture. However, it is more widely adaptable to other soils provided they are sufficiently well drained.

(Cimmeron)

Small and almost dainty, but as rugged as its kin of the fiery deserts, this is a little used yet quite deserving native for dry gardens. The species is from Mexico where it prefers the low to middle elevation foothills making a slightly more cold hardy selection. Its adaptation to difficult caliche soils and rocky limestone ground illustrates the need for extreme drainage wherever they grow. Rounded form rather than the open rangy character of its closer kin make a fine candidate for gardens.
