Lynn’s Legacy Sage was selected by legendary “plantsman” Lynn Lowery for its long season of profuse flowers, more than any other selection of Texas Ranger. Native to Mexico, this slow-to-moderately growing, dense, evergreen shrub explodes in lavender flowers from summer through fall. Extremely drought-tolerant, heat-loving and water-wise, this compact sage needs only occasional, deep watering once established, or none at all. Hummingbirds are attracted to its flowers. Needs well-draining sandy, rocky, or gravelly soil.  Be careful not to overwater, and avoid heavy trimming or sheering of branches. Use  this easy-care shrub in borders, hedges, mass plantings, next to patios, on slopes and banks, or in corners for spot color.
