Low Maintenance, Fragrant, Purple-Flowering Shrub
Want to shower your outdoor gardening space with pink-violet hues? The Purple Rain Texas Sage is a dense-growing plant that offers fragrant magenta flowers to add color and life (pollinators!) to your space.
The Purple Rain Texas Sage produces evergreen leaves that grow in tight branch formations. During the summer to fall seasons, these branches explode with delicate purple flowers that resemble whimsical ruffles and fill your space with sweet, floral scents.
Perfect for cut flower gardens, container planting, or as a floral privacy screen, the Purple Rain Texas Sage is diverse in where you can plant it. But best of all? This plant thrives in poor soils and is cold, heat, and drought resistant while requiring minimal maintenance to maintain its tight form.
Giving a pop of soft violet, the Purple Rain Texas Sage is a lovely addition to landscape styles like cottage, Zen, farmhouse, or eclectic. Plant with similar purple shades like the Lavender Rhododendron Shrub and the Mexican Petunia, or add a pop of complimenting red or pink with the Petite Knock Out Rose and the First Lady Hollywood Hibiscus.
Effortless blooms have never been as beautiful than with the Purple Rain Texas Sage. Order yours today and experience the low maintenance appeal!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Purple Rain Texas Sage in a location with full sun or a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Once you’ve found your location, dig a hole that is 2-3 times the width of the container the plant was shipped in and around the same depth. Remove the container and loosen the roots gently with your fingers. Then place the plant in the hole and backfill the dirt.
If you’re planting in a container, choose a container (with drainage holes) that is 2-3 inches larger than the container that it was shipped in. Place a layer of soil in the bottom of the container and then follow the in-ground planting directions above. Place the plant in an area that receives 6 hours of sun per day.
2. Watering: Immediately after planting your Purple Rain Texas Sage, water deeply. Continue watering as needed until the plant is well established (but allow the soil to dry out between waterings). Once established, you may only water when the soil becomes dry more than 2 inches down.
3. Pruning: Prune in late winter before the shrub starts to flower. Using a hand cutter, trim less than a third of the top growth. The spikier the plant, the more flowers it will produce.
4. Fertilizing: Do not fertilize after planting; this plant prefers poor-quality soil.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
