Mealy Blue Sage

Mealy Blue Sage is a native, warm season perennial wildflower that grows 1-3’ in height. It often forms large colonies in the Blackland Prairies and Edwards Plateau regions of Texas, but it also grows well in other regions. The flower spikes are purple to blue with white bases. It is an important summer pollinator plant in dry years when annual wildflowers are sparse. Mealy blue sage grows best on well drained soils. Deer and livestock do not typically browse this species.
