Subsequently, one may also ask, why is my Texas sage not blooming?
Texas Sage thrives in full sun and well-drained alkaline soil. They will tolerate a bit of shade, but too much shade will result in leggy plants that don't bloom heavily. Supplemental water in summer will help plants grow faster and bloom more, but over-watering or poor drainage will kill Texas sage quickly.
Also, how do you grow Texas sage? Plant Texas sage in late winter or early spring.
- Water your Texas sage thoroughly while it is still in its nursery container.
- Spread 4 to 6 inches of leaf mold, compost, peat moss or another organic matter over an area that is three times as wide as the Texas sage's container.
In this manner, will Texas sage grow in shade?
This sun-loving plant will tolerate part shade (areas with morning shade and afternoon sun), but is more likely to grow lanky and bloom less. A drought-tolerant shrub, once established, water Texas sage only during periods of drought (or when the container garden it's in starts to dry out).
Is Texas sage Evergreen?
As you might have guessed, Texas sage originated in Texas, but also in New Mexico, and across the border, in northern Mexico. It is an evergreen shrub, with grayish-green leaves and purple flowers. Texas sage also goes by the names of Texas Ranger and Silverleaf. It's a perennial which will bloom on its own every year.
