'Henry Duelberg' Sage is a tried-and-true, much taller version of the Mealy Blue Sage. It has larger leaves and more flowers. Interestingly, it is named for the botanist Henry Duelberg since the plant is rumored to have been discovered growing on his grave in a Texas cemetery. The variation of this plant with white flowers instead of blue-purple is named 'Augusta' after Henry Duelberg's wife.
