Lowery's Legacy CenizoLeucophyllum langmaniae
'Lowery's Legacy' was selected for its profuse and frequent flower displays. It grows slowly to about 5 feet tall and wide, with a dense, rounded form. Its sage green foliage is a wonderful backdrop for the lavender flowers. Compared to most selections of Texas sage, it is not as dependent on changes in relative hunidity for flowering and can bloom more often during the course of the summer than other selections.
