(Salmon Autumn Sage) Creamy salmon-colored flowers with white throats make this elegant Autumn Sage perfect for a pastel garden or as a cooling color in a mixed sage border. Bloom time is spring into fall for this petite Salvia greggii native to the American Southwest and Mexico.

Rosy beige calyxes cup the flowers on reddish spikes. Similar to other Autumn Sages, this plant's leaves are small, smooth, elongated ovals that brighten the garden with their light green color.

Autumn Sages love full sun, but tolerate partial shade and may even prefer some shade in areas with severe summer heat. That said, they are heat tolerant. They are also drought resistant, despite preferring regular watering based on local conditions. Concerning soil type, they aren't picky but need good drainage. Also, altitude isn't a problem, because Salmon Autumn Sage grows at elevations up to 9,000 feet in the mountains of Mexico.

Salmon Autumn Sage is perennial to USDA Zones 7 to 9. At 24 inches tall and wide, it works well as a groundcover, short border, edging and container plant. It is ideal for both native and dry gardens and also would look pretty in a cottage-style garden including other Autumn Sages, such as Cherry Chief, Texas Wedding and Señorita Leah.

Butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds all are attracted to the tasty nectar of this sage.
