Lynn’s Legacy Texas ranger, also called Lynn’s Everblooming Texas sage, had high mortality rates in our trial ground’s heavy silt clay loam soil. All irrigation levels suffered at least 33% mortality and up to 50% mortality by June of the second year. Though these losses weakened the data set, there appeared to be no significant differences in growth or flowering between irrigation treatments, though overall appearance was best on the lower-moderate irrigation level of 40% of ETo, which received irrigation once deeply per month.

Some yellowing and leaf drop were observed on all plants during the winter, but they recovered vigor and color quickly in spring. Wooly aphids were present on some plants in spring but did not cause significant damage. Plants grown in demonstration gardens by UC Master Gardeners showed the highest quality ratings at the three Southern California sites with freely draining soil, regardless of inland or coastal location.
