Plant Identification

Can anyone tell me what the plant below the sage
is on the far end of the reflecting pool?

Dallas Arboretum admission $1.00 in August!

This is from the Dallas Woman's Garden at the Arboretum.

Good plant combo -- that image was early July. Now the purple sage is blooming with the crape myrtles.

Its kind of hard to see but it looks like Leucophyllum frutescens aka Texas Sage, Cenizo, Texas Silverleaf. It blooms when its going to rain and the humidity rises so its also called Barometer Bush. There are several different types, that one looks like the kind with greener leaves called 'Green Cloud' and I'm guessing that is another larger variety behind it with the more typical silver leaves.

Oh, thank you. Yes, that is definitely a sage behind it.

I will get a better image next time. Here it is three weeks later.
