Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Light pruning in early spring will encourage bushier growth and more abundant flowering.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the early spring to support healthy growth and abundant blooming.

Winter Protection: In colder climates, consider mulching around the base of the plant to provide extra insulation against winter chill.


Select a well-drained location that receives full sun. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and as deep as the container. Remove the plant from its container and gently loosen the roots. Place the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, patting down firmly to eliminate air pockets. Water thoroughly to help establish the roots. Apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base, avoiding contact with the stem, to retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.

Silver Dream™ Sage is a drought-tolerant plant that thrives in full sun. Water deeply but allow the soil to dry out between waterings. This low-maintenance plant is an excellent choice for water-wise gardens and hot, sunny locations.
