Autumn sage is a small, herbaceous perennial or somewhat woody sub-shrub in the Lamiaceae (mint) family. Growing 2 to 3 feet tall and wide, it is native to Texas and found mainly on rocky slopes. Different cultivars offer flower colors from red to coral, and some are mixed with white. Salvia, the genus name, comes from the Latin word salveo, meaning ‘be well’. Greggi is in honor of Josiah Gregg (1806-1850), a botanist and explorer who discovered the plant on an exploration through Texas.

Growing Autumn Sage

This sage prefers full sun but tolerates afternoon shade in regions with high summer heat. It needs well-drained soil, and tolerates rocky soil. The cultivar 'Wild Thing' reportedly has better winter hardiness than species plants. Propagate it by stem cuttings. This plant attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators and is seldom damaged by deer. It is drought and slightly salt tolerant.

Good locations for autumn sage are slopes, banks, and naturalized areas. Use it as a border, hedge, or mass planting in a children’s, butterfly, pollinator, or drought-tolerant garden.
