Some repair guys went through my backyard and actually broke one of my Texas sage plants. The base is still okay; the top part broke off. I was wondering if I could still save that broken off part somehow or is it gone for good?

:(Thank you.

That might depend. There are two plants commonly called Texas Sage. Do you know which one you have?
I'm going to assume you have the shrub 2 to 5 feet tall and 4-6 feet in width that is called Texas Sage. If it is, you should be able to root and save your plant piece.
Put cutting in a 50/50 mix of perlite and sphagnum peat. Make sure the growing medium does not remain too soggy. Rooting should take place in about 4 weeks if it's going to.

I would by some rooting hormone before I put it in the soil. This will help the roots to develop.
