Texas Sage Shrub
Thrives in the Hottest, Driest Areas
The Texas Sage Shrub is famous for:
• being smothered in purple blooms
• grows in a variety of conditions, low maintenance and drought tolerant
• unique silvery-green foliage
Very Low-Maintenance and Easy to Grow
The Texas Sage is a tough shrub that doesn't need much care- it thrives on neglect. It became popular in arid regions because it does so well in hot, dry areas. It blooms in summer and fall, and the flowers really pop since most other plants don't give off much color during those times.
This is a bush with dozens of small, purple, ball-shaped flowers that have a very soft texture. It's even been said that the flowers smell like bubblegum! The Texas Sage is a relatively low-maintenance shrub that can certainly brighten up anyone's yard.
No Fertilization Needed!
This plant is built to live in hot, desert environments, so summer would be the ideal time to grow it. No fertilization is needed. It really is a "plant it and forget it" shrub!
Ideal for a Variety of Conditions
The shrub can use light pruning in March, however, not too much as the plant is meant to look uneven and rugged. The higher humidity is what triggers the flowers to bloom instead of the moisture in the soil in which it is planted.
