Description of Salvia greggii:

Salvia greggii, commonly known as autumn sage or Gregg's sage, is a perennial plant native to Southwest Texas and Mexico. It is highly valued for its long flowering season and drought resistance. The plant typically reaches a height and width of about 50 cm to 1 meter, featuring small, aromatic, intense green leaves. The flowers, blooming from spring through fall, vary in color from red, pink, white to purple, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Origin and History:

Salvia greggii is named after Josiah Gregg, an American naturalist who explored the Southwest United States and Mexico in the 19th century. Its resilience and adaptability have made it a favorite in gardens worldwide, particularly in regions with climates similar to its natural habitat.

General Care:

Salvia greggii is relatively easy to care for due to its adaptability. It prefers sunny locations but can tolerate some shade. It thrives best in well-drained soil and can prosper in a variety of soil types, from sandy to clay.


This sage is highly drought-tolerant once established, so watering can be reduced. During the growing season, moderate watering is sufficient, ensuring the soil dries out between watering sessions to avoid moisture excess. In colder climates or during wet winters, reduce watering to minimize the risk of root rot.


Pruning is essential to maintain a compact shape and encourage abundant flowering. It is advisable to prune lightly after each blooming cycle to remove faded flowers and promote new growth. A more substantial pruning can be done at the start of spring to remove any dead or damaged growth and to shape the plant.
