Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. In its first year this shrubby salvia grew more than three feet tall and wide and bloomed most of the summer. Once established it will get a bit taller and wider. Hooded flowers with pale lips and purple blue hoods are stacked up the stems in compact inflorescences. The persistent calyces are purple. The foliage is very attractive, spoon-shaped and has good substance. Some leaves of Salvia chamelaeagnea have toothed margins, others have smooth and wavy ones.
