(Salvia greggii)
A staple of North Texas gardens, beloved for its long bloom season and attractiveness to hummingbirds. Autumn sage is a small woody native shrub that likes rocky soil, but will grow well in the garden with judicious pruning, good drainage and not too much water. Comes in coral, pink, red, white and purple. Usually has one big flush of spring bloom; prune hard after that and you’ll get light blooms through the summer and the best display of the year in the fall.
