Jerusalem Sage

Fuzzy leaves and whorls of lemon yellow flowers will make you think Jerusalem sage is a perennial, but this evergreen plant is technically a shrub. It develops a large, mounding shape over time, growing 4 feet tall and wide. Plant it alongside hardy perennials, such as catmint and bee balm, in a perennial garden, or group it with evergreen shrubs, where it will provide a welcome burst of summer color.

Plant Jerusalem sage in full sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil. Promote a second flush of bloom by promptly trimming off faded stems after the plant's early-summer bloom.
