Chiapas Sage

Salvia chiapensis

From the forests of Chiapas, Mexico, this evergreen perennial forms a dense mound of rich, deep emerald green leaves and sweeping stalks of magenta pink flowers. Whorls of striking, two-lipped blooms appear from spring to fall, and attract pollinators and beneficial bugs. Good groundcover for areas of dry shade, or suited for containers.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
