Leucophyllum langmaniae Lynn's Legacy Leucophyllum langmaniae 'Lynn's Legacy' (Rio Bravo Sage) - A slow growing dense evergreen rounded shrub to 5 feet tall by as wide with small dark green leave and lavender flowers that are produced in profusion from summer through fall. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate infrequently or not at all once established - an extremely drought and heat tolerant plant. Hardy to 10 F. This is a great shrub named for the legendary Texas plantsman Lynn Lowery, who selected this plant for its profuse and long flowering. It is longer blooming that most other Texas Sage and for this reason has also been called Leucophyllum 'Lynn's Everblooming' in Texas. This plant is native to the Chihuahuan Desert of Mexico. The name for the genus comes from the Greek words 'leukos' meaning "white" and 'phyllos' meaning "leaf", in referrence to the white foliage of Leucophyllum frutescens. The specific epithet honors 20th century American botanist Ida Kaplan Langman.
