Texas home garden ideas should include colorful, resilient sages, especially Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii). Many of our showiest Sages are native to or grow well across the varied climates and soils of the Lone Star State.
Similar to the so-big nature of Texas, we have a so-big queue of flowering sage plants and companions for the state. But we've limited this list to our top 10 favorites. They are cream-of-the crop varieties that thrive throughout Texas. All of the plants pictured here do well in xeriscape gardens and tolerate hot weather.
