Notes for Identification:

Forsythia Sage (Salvia madrensis)  is one of very few salvias with yellow flowers. It produces its showy blooms in late fall and early winter, when many flowering shrubs and perennials are beginning to go dormant. Give it plenty of room in a shaded or semi-shaded perennial or mixed shrub border. Or let it stand alone beneath tall oaks or pines. You may need to stake forsythia sage to keep it from falling over. The butter-yellow flowers, arranged in whorls, do well as cut flowers.
