I needed a bush to place it at the center of a bed where the sun hits the whole day, something evergreen, good looking, not a huge bush, contrasting with the dark coffee brown fence at the back, low care. At first I though a cenizo sage would make it, but those are bigger and leggy, that something deterred me from getting it, until I saw the silverado Texas sage and convinced me the most. It should be prune early in March, not more than 1/3 from the tip.
