Horticultural Notes

2-3′ x 3-4′       Californica Sagebrush is an evergreen, highly aromatic shrub with fine, divided linear gray leaves on supple slender stems. Small nearly inconspicuous yellow flowers line the upper stems. This is a very drought tolerant shrub.

Native Americans used the aromatic leaves to ward off insects from stored foods and housing areas.
