Cedar sage is a rounded leaf perennial with deep red tubular flowers often visited by hummingbirds. It forms a nice clump and will send up many flower spikes. Its crimson blooms appear in early spring, are profuse for a couple of months, and then continue sporadically through summer.

 

Cedar sage has a hard time perpetuating itself under deciduous hardwoods, as the large leaves on the ground will block the emergence of seedlings and of the new years growth. It really is adapted to live under junipers/cedars. If you do plant them in areas with large, fallen leaves, keep leaves cleared from areas you want the plant to naturalize in. Also, it can become stressed and stunted in continuous full sun, so plant in dappled shade. Morning sun is best. Remove spent seed spikes and cut back dormant foliage, if necessary.
