Deep in the heart of Texas, there is a delightful variety of sage known as Autumn Sage.   Actually, it also grows in New Mexico and Arizona, but you get the idea.  Considering where it grows, it is an incredibly heat resistant plant and it is often used as a delightful highlight in gardens around the American Southwest.  The Latin name for this variety is Salvia greggii, after a Mexican gentleman named J. Gregg who first collected the plant in the deserts of Texas.

It is an evergreen shrub that can grow anywhere from one to three feet in width and three feet in height.  It enjoys desert like conditions.  Autumn Sage blossoms into lovely pink or red flowers in the spring, summer and the fall.  Flowering may decrease during summer but perks up in fall.  The leaves on the autumn variety are small, round or long, and they are dark green with a somewhat sticky coating. These shrubs give off a lovely fragrance.  A magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds!
