I have a bed devoted to different varieties of Salvia greggii. In Texas we call it Autumn Sage. I usually cut it way back in the last part of June in preparation for blooms in the fall. We are having a delightfully early fall this year (knock on wood) so they are blooming their heads off. I promised myself that I would keep track of all the varieties, but I'm starting to lose track. I also have some that have seeded that are each different than their parents. It is an easy bed to maintain because they don't need gallons of water. I have noticed however that they seem to respond well to it during really dry spells. Salvia greggii is tops on my list!
