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.

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. by Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting Add to ideabook by Noelle Johnson Landscape Consulting Botanical name: Salvia greggii Common name: Autumn sage Origin: Native to Texas, New Mexico and Mexico Where it will grow: Hardy to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (USDA zone 7; find your zone) Water requirement: Low to medium Light requirement: Filtered shade in the low desert; full sun in other climates Mature size: 2 feet tall and wide Benefits and tolerances: Drought tolerant once established, but looks best with deep watering weekly; attracts butterflies and hummingbirds Seasonal interest: Flowers in fall and spring in the low desert; blooms in summer in cooler climates When to plant: Fall or spring

Autumn sage (Salvia greggii) frequently hybridizes with Salvia microphylla. The hybrids are sometimes referred to as Salvia x jamensis, with flower color variations including peach, pale pink, purple, white and bicolor. The hybrids have the same growth habits and requirements as autumn sage.
