Austin Native Landscaping: “Autumn Sage is one of the best Texas native perennials one can choose in full sun. Great as a low layer planting acting as a beautiful evergreen foreground to your taller elements in the back. This Xeriscape worthy (Cherry sage will survive with as little as 12 annual inches of rain), evergreen, highly deer resistant, long flowering perennials is a no brainer pick for most full sun, drought resistant garden designs. Cherry Sage comes in many varieties: White, Purple, Red and Pink. Highly recommended!”
