Anyone familiar with Lynn's Legacy (Tx Sage)

After reading up on this variety, I'm wondering if anyone has ever actually seen this variety of Tx Sage in bloom? Another name is "Everblooming" Tx Sage. So, I'm wondering just how everblooming it is.

Is it that impressive considering the other varieties of Texas Sage (Ceniza)? I'm just wondering how aggressive I need to be to about locating and planting it.

Thanks for whatever feedback you can offer.

I haven't grown it myself, but I saw it growing at the San Antonio location of Antique Rose Emporium (which is no more). It was so unusual in the way it bloomed all along the branches in large clusters of flowers that from a distance I didn't recognize it as a Ceniza. Of course I don't know often it puts on that show, but if I were buying a Ceniza that's the one I'd look for. I hope someone who has grown it will answer the frequent blooming question. I'll be checking out the S. A. nurseries this spring to see who carries it.

Roselee,
Does this look like what you've seen? I'm hoping to hear more about this plant from others who might be growing it. It's apparently one that is hard to locate.

Xtal, I'm not sure. What I noticed was the clusters of flowers all along the branches. If you Google images of Lynn's Legacy you'll see what I mean.

Christina's in Frisco will have these in stock in mid March............3 gallon containers for about $25. Haven't looked elsewhere as this is pretty close to me.

These are also carried at Medina Garden Nursery in Medina which is between Bandera and San Antonio. Not exactly convenient but worth it if you love native plants.

While I don't normally care for the look of Texas Sages, I like this one AND it has my name! If I ever run across one, I'll definitely find a place for it. Thanks for the education.

I go to Medina Garden Nursery one or two times a year. The owner that is usually there is a true native plant lover! I'll have to look for that one!

I saw these at my local Lowe's this past Spring. They are also on my wish list. I don't think many people know about this, not planted frequently in the Joshua/Burleson/Ft Wt area. Ask Lowe's or a smaller plant nursery if they will carry it this Spring for you.
