Description

The largest of the red sages, this perennial plant gets its botanical name from the penstemon like rosette from which it grows. It is found in the wild in an extremely limited range of locations. It was once thought to be extinct, but small populations have since been found. Plant this seed and help to keep an endangered species alive for future generations to enjoy.

Native Plant Society of Texas has written an article about a stand of big red sage on the Guadalupe river. It's worth reading to learn more about this rare wild species!
