Plant Description and Details

White/silvery foliage makes White Sagebrush an interesting accent. It parallels Big Sagebrush with its aromatic sage-y scent and leaves covered with soft white tiny hairs. Its form is very different, though. White Sage has brushy, non-woody stems thatreach 3 feet and die back in winter, while Big Sage grows to be an 8' bush with permanent woody branches. Tiny yellow-green flowers cluster on the ends of the stems in the summer. It spreads by roots to form attractive patches of soft silver texture.
