Salvia farinacea 'Henry Duelberg' is native to the United States. In fact, it's native to the State of Texas, as it was discovered in a dusty graveyard halfway between Houston and Austin by Texas conservationist and horticulturist Greg Grant, who took cuttings of the Salvia that covered the gravesite of Henry Duelberg.
Henry Duelberg is the husband of Augusta Duelberg, who has a white-flowered Salvia named after her by Greg Grant.
Both the Henry Deulberg and Augusta Duelberg sages are now listed as Texas Superstars by Texas A&M University – an elite group of about 50 plants that are known for great beauty, long bloom times, and hardy survival in extreme growing conditions.

Supposedly found growing in a cemetery on Henry Duelberg's grave by Greg Grant. There is also a white one that he also discovered on Augusta Duelberg's grave. It's a good story to tell. I see my white one go back and forth from bright white to pale blue, and back to white again depending on the heat of summer.
