Discovered by Texan David Steinbrunner, who named the cultivar after his wife, Teresa, this sage fits well in a mixed planting with another of our Lone Star State favorites, Salvia greggii`Texas Wedding'.

The first person to bring Autumn Sage to the notice of the horticultural world was Josiah Gregg, after whom the species is named. A pioneer and plant explorer, Gregg discovered it in Northern Mexico in the mid-19th century.

Thank you, David and Josiah. We appreciate plant explorers and developers. Indirectly, so do the butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds who have discovered Teresa's Autumn Sage and other Salvias in our garden.
