An in depth investigation of our California native Salvias (Sages). The class will walk the Garden grounds to identify and discuss the variety of Salvias that flourish in our region. Topics can include everything from the cultural care of Salvias in the home landscape to the role these plants play in our chaparral and sagescrub ecosystems. Be prepared to stroll the garden, take photos, ask questions and enjoy our aromatic Salvias!
