A flower bed of sage and chrysanthemums

Get This Look

Try teaming forsythia sage (Salvia madrensis) with later flowering 'Perfect Joy' and 'Gum Drop' chrysanthemums. To keep the sage in check, cut it back by half as late as August so it will be the ideal height (5 feet tall) in November. For cooler regions, we suggest you cut back in late June. Like the mums, this sage appreciates full sun and moist but not well-drained soil.
