Texas Natives – October, 2007

Autumn Sage
Salvia greggii

Autumn sage is the blooming backbone of a Texas native garden! This semi-evergreen small shrub thrives throughout most of the state given full sun and good drainage. Flower colors range from white to pink, through coral, red or purple and appear from early spring to late fall. Hummingbirds are particularly fond of the flowers.
