With its airy spikes of colorful flowers, Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii) provides long-lasting color in the garden from summer into fall. Its heat and drought tolerance also add versatility.

How to Grow

Grow in full sun and well-draining soil. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage new flowers. Cut back by half in spring to promote bushy growth.

Care Tips

Water when the top inch of soil becomes dry. Avoid wetting the foliage. Fertilize monthly with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. Mulch around the base to conserve moisture.

Uses

Autumn Sage is ideal for perennial gardens, borders, containers, and pollinator gardens. It can be massed for bold color or used as an airy, colorful accent.

Planting Tips

Space 18-24 inches apart in well-draining soil and full sun. Dig a hole twice the container width and backfill with soil. Water thoroughly after planting.

Maintenance

Deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage new flowers. Cut back by half in early spring to maintain shape and vigor. Divide large clumps every 2-3 years.

Pests & Diseases

Watch for aphids, whiteflies, and mealybugs. Improve air circulation around plants. Control pests with insecticidal soap or neem oil sprays. Practice good sanitation.
