Lepechinia hastate - Baja Pitcher Sage
15 open pollinated seeds from our gardens for $4.00.
The large, deliciously-scented, spade-like, thick, felted, grey-green leaves adorn the stalk that grows upright until late summer, when it finally produces superb 1 to 1.5m high flower spikes, composed of red-lavender lipstick-like flowers, making it a great late season garden perennial.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. Germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20C.
