|Mealy Blue Sage (Salvia farinacea)
A common range survivor native to central Texas, this handsome perennial has held or expanded its place in the local landscape over the years. It has become one of our most common wildflowers. Bloom spikes range from white to deep blue, with calyxes tinted as well. Mealy blue sage naturalizes readily in meadows and adds carefree color in mass planting beds. Spent blooms can be removed to hasten reblooming from side shoots.
Mealy Blue Sage is deer-resistant.
