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

Posted by @frostweed on
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.

What an amazing plant Texas Sage (Leucophyllum frutescens 'Lynn Lowrey's Dwarf Everblooming') is!!

Like all the other Texas sages, this plant only needs lots of sunshine and a little water to be a happy camper. It can reach up to five feet tall and rarely needs pruning, maintaining a natural rounded form all by itself.

Although this plant may not bloom continuously as the name implies, it does bloom more often than the standard variety, and when it does, hold on to your hat, because it will blow you over with its gorgeousness.

The blooms are so close together that you can hardly see the foliage and the color is a heavenly lavender-blue. The first time I saw this shrub in full bloom, I was filled with wonder at the beauty that nature can put together.

Needless to say, I think everyone should have one or more of these wonderful shrubs.
