Cleveland Sage

The Cleveland sage is the July 2015 Plant of the Month.  The Cleveland sage or Salvia clevelandii is a California native shrub. It grows in the wild on sunny and rocky slopes in the soft chaparral of Central California south to Baja. Cleveland sage produces an abundance of fragrant silver leaves and beautiful blue flowers that are extremely attractive to people and bees.  The Cleveland sage is an excellent addition to any drought tolerant garden.

Cleveland sage is planted throughout the Airport grounds, especially the outbound 101 road, the Airfield Operations building and on the Bay Trail.
