Texas Sage (Leucophyllum Frutescens) Profile!

We are starting to create individual Texas native plants profiles and Texas Sage (Leucophyllum Frutescens) is our second.

 

From the entry:

“One of our absolutely favorites! This tough as nails,drought tolerant evergreen absolutely thrives in Central Texas and Austin landscapes. A healthy full grown Cenizo is truly a sight to behold; After a good rain, almost like magic, it explodes with hundreds of small purple flowers. We frequently use it in our xeriscape flowerbed designs and sometimes install it as an informal low maintenance hedge or screen, although it also works well as a foundation planting. Texas Sage really does loves the sun, and will struggle and grow weak and leggy in a shady location. Pruning and shearing is unnecessary as it has a very handsome natural form. Texas sage is truly native landscapers plant of choice!

 

What do you think about Texas Sage? Do you grow it yourself? Pictures or insights to share?
