Texas Sage

When the Texas sage blooms it smells so good.

The blooms are purple and in clusters it is really a beautiful plant. The leaves of the plant are a silvery green. I have heard they are drought tolerant but the more you water them the more they bloom.

There is nothing better than the smell of flowers in the garden.

  1. Cenzio is it’s proper name, and they do GREAT in a drought. Mine (in the front doorway) hasn’t had a lick of water since Memorial Day. Still pretty with the green foliage, but there are no blossoms unless there’s a good rainfall. When it finally does rain again (and I hope it does!), it will explode in purple blossoms and be covered in bees and wasps. It’s why it’s also called ‘Texas Rain Sage.’ Your photos are stunning, Sonya.

    • The wildflowers are quite amazing, but the fields of them like many see in pictures are in a different area than we live in. Sure we do get some Bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes and a lot of buttercups but not the fields of them. I have planted bluebonnets seeds before and they never came up. Thank You.
