Silverado Sage


The Silverado Sage is a Texas native and as such responds well to the hot temperatures of Texas summers. The purplish pink flowers provide a stunning contrast to the silvery leaves during the summer months. The Silverado Sage takes very little effort to maintain and, in fact, it is possible to provide too much care to these plants.
