I have this plant growing in part shade under a small oak tree in alkaline limestone soil for about 8 years. It has survived the great Texas drought . It had some die back and I cut it back and now it is two years of great recovery. It also experienced stress when we had a year of 55" of rain followed by drought. I think its roots rotted and thenit had no way to deal with the drought. Hummers love it. It blooms a nice flush in Spring and a great flush in fall. I like to place it where the low autumn sun stabs a shaft under the oak and lights it up at sunset. The blooms go on fire. This is easy an easy plant for me. My soil has great drainage but is fairly infertile even with its leaf litter where it is at. I also have some growing with harsh afternoon sun on a rough area of limestone gravel and broken rocky soil. It grows slower and smaller there. But it lives without irrigation.

As with all the sages, this one just keeps on blooming. During the summer the perennial is lush with leaves. In the fall (in Jacksonville) hundreds of reddish orange blooms adorn the plant. Mine has been blooming for almost 2 months!
