Salvia clevelandii is a species of sage native to the coast of southern California and northern Baja California. Its common names include Blue sage, Fragrant sage, and Cleveland sage. This is a small, hairy, dull-green shrub native to the chaparral and coastal sage scrub plant communities of the region. It has wrinkly leather-textured leaves with tiny ridged teeth along the edges and it bears plentiful rounded inflorescences of tubular lavender to dark purple flowers with long stamens. The fruit is a spotted nutlet. Salvia clevelandii is one of the parents of the hybrid Salvia 'Celestial Blue'.
