Mejorana is a multi-stemmed shrub which stands 2 to 6 feet tall. It usually grows on shallow, rocky, sandy, gravelly or limestone hillsides or brushy areas of the Edwards Plateau and South Texas Plains. It produces small bluish flowers throughout the summer following a rainfall. Blue sage is not grazed by either livestock or wildlife, but is used as cover by small mammals. In an irrigated garden it will need frequent touch-up pruning to maintain a pleasing shape. Its dried leaves have been used to flavor meats and other foods.
