This clone of autumn sage is slightly more heat tolerant than the species. This woody perennial is native to Texas and Mexico, and forms a rounded mound of glossy green leaves. In the spring and fall it blooms profusely with small hot pink flowers, attracting hummingbirds. Plant in full sun (in middle to high deserts) to part shade (in low deserts). Prune off spent flower spikes to initiate fresh blooms. Supplemental nitrogen fertilizer helps carry plants through the summer heat.
