The Texas sage is a fairly slow-growing plant, and may take up to 2 years to become fully established and bloom reliably. Once established, the Texas Sage is extremely drought tolerant, requires very little supplemental water, and will bloom after a good rain storm. (Don’t try to trick it into blooming by watering heavily–it won’t work.) After a week or two, the blooms will fall off, but the silver gray-green leaves stay year-round. This plant can eventually grow to around 6 feet tall. The older it gets, the more intensely it blooms. Bees really like this plant when it’s in bloom.
