Mexican Bush Sage
I got back from 2.5 weeks in the Gulf of Mexico and found this wonderful perennial blooming away in my yard. Mexican Bush Sage is a lovely fall blooming perennial that thrives in our area. It's surprising to me that it is not planted more. Look at how lovely this plant is with its purple spikes of velvety flowers. Its real name is salvia leucantha. It attracts hummingbirds and butterflies in addition to being a nice plant. Takes very little care. Get you some! Please click on the photo to get a larger and better picture.
