This is a favorite with many gardeners because it will provide you with dynamic purple blooms through the autumn season. Mexican Bush Sage (salvia leucantha) is drought tolerant which makes including it in your garden an even wiser decision. Particularly with the drought we’ve been experiencing this season.

It can get to be around 4′ tall. During milder winters, it may survive. But if it does freeze back, just give it a hard cut back during the month of February. It will quickly start showing new growth.

It will give you its greatest performance if planted in full sun, but it can also handle some light shade.
