Shades of Purple
Although there are many beautiful typical fall colors in the gardens, one of my favorite signs of the changing seasons is one of the not-so-typical color of the velvety-purple blooms of Mexican sage (salvia leucantha). It does bloom throughout the year sporadically, but now is when it really come into its own for the fall and winter months while so many other plants are taking a rest. These are in my street-side garden in San Juan Capistrano.
