Rooting a Piece of a Texas Sage Plant?

January 26, 2017

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?

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.

you could always try to re root it... make a fresh cut in the bottom , put in rooting hormone, ( walmart) following directions and put in soil...
