Quick Overview:

‘Furman’s Red’ produces cherry red flowers. Flowers are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Salvia greggii, commonly known as autumn sage, Texas sage or red Chihuahuan sage, is a small deciduous sub-shrub that grows to 2-3′ tall and as wide. It is native to rocky slopes from western and central Texas into northern Mexico. Small, rounded, oval leaves (to 2″ long) are aromatic when crushed. Two-lipped flowers bloom in whorls above the foliage on 3-6″ stems from June to October. Flower color is usually a form of red, but may also appear as orange, pink, purple or sometimes white. Best bloom occurs in late spring and fall, with sporadic bloom in the heat of the summer.
