We do have several varieties of sage that keep some color in the hills as all the grass turns to brown. They're some of the first plants to "green" up in the Spring (some aren't very green) and they keep their color until late Fall.
They're all flowering now, but it's hard to tell because the flowers are so inconspicuous. They are about ⅛" across and usually are yellow or white--nothing showy!
