I'm trying to be sure about silver sage. There seems to be a number of sages that are similar. Is the attached photo silver sage?
And is silver sage the best or strongest or most versatile (or what) of the sages?

It's certainly Artemisia and looks like it's probably A. ludoviciana. The members of the genus have pretty similar properties.

My (Latino) neighbor has some growing in his backyard. He says his culture calls it Estefiate, and he tells me it makes a lovely cup of tea.

Estafiate is one of the common names for Atremisia ludoviciana.
