‘Alice’ was deliberately bred in Australia with a cross of white greggii and S.dorisiana. The foliage carries some of the perfume of dorisiana. Dorisiana is sometimes known as fruit salad sage and has a very strong pleasant perfume.
Having only had it through one winter its hardiness is uncertain but it seems reasonably hardy to frost. Sun might be the best aspect but both parents take part shade so it no doubt will also.
