The Compact Texas Sage is a slow grower with a dense growth habit that helps keep this variety "compact". It is an evergreen with silvery /gray foliage and is Hardy in Zones 8-10. It grows best in full sun, but will tolerate partial sun. This is a fairly low maintenance plant with moderate water needs. The Compact Texas Sage is considered drought tolerant and good drainage is a must for this plant. It thrives in alkaline soil in a hot dry climate. It produces a purple/pink bloom in the summertime. They will grow to 3-5 feet tall. Highly desirable as deer resistant and wind tolerant. Creekside Nursery currently has these available in a 3 gallon size.
