Winter blooms on Black Sage (salvia mellifera)

One of my black sage plants is showing flowers already.

This surprised me. It has been cold here, and even rainy. Yesterday the high was in the low 60’s and last night it actually got down to 30°!

According to  one of the best sites for information on California Native Plants, Las Pilitas, the black sage isn’t supposed to flower until March. I guess no one told this one.
