How to use it. This small perennial shrub looks great paired with yellow-flowering perennials such as angelita daisy, coreopsis, damianita and rudbeckia.Use autumn sage as an understory plant by adding it around a tree that produces light shade. It can grow in full shade, but flowering will be reduced. Avoid planting it in areas that receive full afternoon sun — northern or eastern exposures are best.Shown: Autumn sage planted with yellow pansies at the University of South Carolina

Share: Some fans of autumn sage (Salvia greggii) will rave about its beautiful flowers. Others will praise the fact that deer and rabbits leave it alone. Desert gardeners love that it will thrive underneath their favorite tree, while Southern gardeners like to plant it in full sun. And people aren't the only ones who find the flowers irresistible — so do butterflies and hummingbirds.
