Bethlehem Sage 'Mrs Moon' Characteristics
'Mrs. Moon' are attractive short perennials, especially when planted together to form a groundcover. Shade and cool soils are vital to the health of 'Mrs. Moon'. The soils should not be allowed to dry out and may need to be watered in times of drought. Full sun can cause wilting or leaf scorch. While the soils must remain moist, poorly drained soils often lead to root or crown rot. 'Mrs. Moon' spreads slowly via runners and creeping roots to eventually form a groundcover, though this species is not invasive. Overcrowded plants should be divided to reduce likelihood of disease and to keep the overall appearance tidy.
There are few insect or disease issues that threaten 'Mrs. Moon'. Slugs may snack on the leaves. Powdery mildew is an occasional problem, especially in overcrowded locations.
