Texas Sage

Texas Sage is also called purple sage for the lavender to purple flowers which bloom for summer into fall. It is an evergreen shrub that is tolerant of sun, heat, and low water conditions. The foliage is soft silver to gray. Another nickname the shrub is called is a barometer bush because the shrub’s blooming process starts when there is high humidity or excessive soil moisture. Texas Sage can tolerate temperatures down to 10 degrees Fahrenheit as well as thrive in the extensive summer heat. Naturally they can get up to 6 to 8 feet but Texas Sage is cut to maintain a 3 feet status by homeowners and gardeners, or use a different variety for landscapes.
