Tough, hardy and widely adaptable rarely goes hand in hand with airy, fine-textured and beautiful, but allow us to introduce you to the Pink Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii)! This tough perennial shrub is all that and more!
Fragrant top to bottom, the fine-textured, small oval leaves of this perennial Sage have a minty, herbal aroma and feature incredible versatility, adaptability and drought tolerance! Evergreen in warmer climates, these are fantastic upright-growing sun garden additions!
From spring until frost, you’ll enjoy bright magenta to hot pink, almost red flowers, that are just as aromatic as the foliage! Attracting bees, butterflies and hummingbirds that will not be able to resist the allure of these vivid flowers!
Tolerant of sandy or rocky soils, these plants are natives throughout the south-western US and Mexico, Sages tolerate the hot, dry climates and look good doing it!
Inject some fantastic bright color and long-lasting blooms into your arid landscape and sun gardens with this Perennial Sage! Drought and deer resistant, you can plant them about anywhere without any worry.
Tall enough for the back of the border accents and season-long color, use among your Herb gardens, sun-baked Perennial plantings, Pollinator gardens and Rock gardens for long-lasting presence!
Lovely enough to add fine texture to your Cottage gardens and even container gardening on hot, sunny patios and balconies, these are great informal beauties. A natural addition to Mediterranean-themed gardens, plant with Rosemary and sculpted, slender evergreens for a unique look.
Plant as a buffer between your home and the road in the infamous ‘hell-strip’ where Sages seem to thrive despite salt, sand, sun and urban conditions. Perfect for city and courtyard environments, there’s little this hardy plant won’t thrive in.
Easy to grow, these tough plants are highly drought tolerant once established. Plant in the full sun, the gleaming pink flowers are defiant in the sun, humidity and heat. Growing 2-3’ tall and wide, these grow upright and will need protection from strong wind.
While hardy in USDA zones 6 through 9 in clay, sand and loamy earth, and any well-drained soil works. Growing equally well in moderately fertile soils and average moisture found in the home garden setting, Sage will only do poorly in soggy, wet ground.
Water regularly during that first year while a new plant is establishing, afterward these are able to hold their own, but for best results and the most blooms, water during times of need, especially when planted in a container or planter.
Prune or deadhead to keep the flowers returning throughout the entire growing season, shear back in winter to give your plant a clean, finished look if you are in the warmer growing zones where Sages can be evergreen. Otherwise, there’s little else in the way of maintenance Sages require.
