Answer: Since you've only recently planted your Texas Sage, I think the problems are associated with transplant stress. It's normal and natural for plants to wilt, drop leaves and look otherwise puny while the root systems are trying to get themselves established in their new homes. Texas Sage is tolerant of all kinds of soil, so I don't think clay soil is causing any particular problem, nor should the mulch. At this point, water your plants deeply once each week. When they become established you'll see new growth. Next spring, just as they begin to grow again, you can prune to shape them and to encourage even more growth, which will help them fill out again and look attractive. Just be a little patient with your plants - they'll reward you with spectacular flowers and foliage by next spring.
