Texas Sage, Leucophyllum frutescens 'Lynn Lowrey's Dwarf Everblooming'

By frostweed
December 6, 2013

This Texas Sage variety was discovered by Lynn Lowrey while he was on one of his road trips in search of new and different native plants. He found it by the side of the road and was astonished by its shade of color and beauty. He took a cutting to his greenhouse and propagated it so that everyone could enjoy it.

Apparently they sell it here during their plant sales. That occurs in late September.

I am sorry, we don't ship plants, but I can send you cuttings later on, I will be in touch about it.
I will also try to list nurseries who might have it in case you would rather have a plant. Smiling
