I got this Salvia canariensis or Canary Island Sage from my friend Jay after we moved to this house about 2 years ago. He said it would get tall so I planted it by our fence. The stems are covered in white fuzz that's pretty cool. It's blooming well now and is about 5' tall. I saw one recently that was 6' tall. Salvias are easy to grow. There are perennial types and the common blue and red types that people treat as annuals.
