Autumn Sage is one of the best flowering perennials that I have grown. Pink Preferance is one of the hardiest varieties and is in bloom from May until frost. Extremely heat and drought tolerant. Perfect for those tough areas that stay dry and nothing else will grow. Semi-evergreen foliage stays on until mid winter with a purplish color. I have grown many different varieties of Autumn sage only to be dissapointed in spring when they did not come back. Prefers well draining soils and full sun. Plant in pots for patio and decks.
