Interesting Facts

This variety of sage gets its name from the unique, bicolored flowers that are said to resemble a face with lipstick.  Warm summer nights will cause the plant to produce red blooms with an occasional solid white.  As nights become cooler in the fall again, the blooms become bicolored.
