Under quasi-desert conditions, purple sage is a dense rounded 3-5 ft (0.9-1.5 m) semi-evergreen shrub. In an irrigated garden, it is inclined to be a more open 5-8 ft (1.5-20.3 m) plant. It has 0.5-1 in (1.3-2.5 cm) felty wavy-looking ovalish alternate leaves with silvery pubescence. The five-lobed tubular 0.5-1 in (1.3-2.5 cm) flowers are borne singly in the leaf axils. They have spotted throats and a typical foxglove family character. The flowers appear after summer rains, sometimes covering the plants with white, pink, lavender, purple, or blue blossoms for a spectacular week long display. There are several similar Leucophyllum species , but the literature is confusing as to just how many and which varieties represent which species.
