I need you to submit another question to the Monrovia website telling which plant you are referring to as there is more than one that goes by the name purple sage including: leucophyllum, Salvia leucantha, and Salvia greggii.
When I know the true identity of your plant I can provide a good answer about how and when to prune it.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
