On our collecting trip to Guatemala we discovered this beauty growing in the shaded river valleys. Salvia cacaliifolia (commonly called Blue vine sage,) is a perennial shrub native to the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras. It grows best from 5000-8000 feet elevation there. It blooms mid-summer to autumn with many pure gentian-blue flowers, about .5 inches long, with a small green calyx. The leaves are grass-green in color with many hairs. The creeping rootstock spreads easily, forming clumps that are easily divided. This plant is an amazing shade plant that almost continuously blooms making it a must have for the garden!
