Comments: Texas sage has a mounding form does well where the soil is dry, but dies when planted in poorly drained or wet soils. It flowers heavily in late spring and has some flowers most of the year except during very cold weather. Flowering generally occurs at onset of rainy weather or when the humidity is very high or becomes very high. Used as accent plant, in mass plantings, and in borders.
