The Henry Duelberg Salvia is a variety of the mealy cup or blue sage and is a perennial native plant of South and Central Texas. It’s a Texas Superstar® known for low maintenance and heat, drought, and humidity tolerance. A growing favorite of Texas native plant gardens, plant this gem in the rear of flower beds due to its three-foot height and width. It grows thicker and will flower better in the fall if cut back in mid-summer. It is a hardy plant up through Zone 7.
